I love this book! No, I adore this book! This is so cute! If you are a cat lover, you are going to fall in love with His Holiness' Cat! Even if you are not a cat lover, if you are a lover of spiritual truth and wisdom, you will enjoy this book, as well.
This is the second book in a series. If you have not read the first book, "The Dalai Lama's Cat" you can get it here.
Inspired by the author's very own Himalayan, the fictional journey continues of HHC, the little cat that was rescued by the Dalai Lama.
I love the premise of this book, and the first one, and how Author David Michie cleverly weaves within the fun, exciting, and sometimes dramatic adventures of HHC lessons of deeper spiritual truths and higher ways of looking at things, making them available and more easily absorbed than just coming right out and teaching them. And what better perspective, what better view, at spirituality than that of a cat, and not just any cat, but the Dalai Lama's Cat!
I love especially that this book magically transcends the spirituality genre and just steps right over into an area that many people who would never pick up a book on Buddhism or meditation or spirituality in general, might actually read and enjoy. My husband is one of them. He would never walk into a book store and pick up a book about the teachings of the Buddha or about meditation or anything in the self-help or spirituality genre. And yet I am here to tell you that my husband saw me reading this book and he wanted to read it. And when he did read it, he loved it as much as I did! This book, and the first one, would make excellent Christmas gifts to anyone you would like to share some new spiritual ideals with.
No matter what you call her, HHC, Rinpoche, or Snow Lion, curl up with "The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring" and find your own answer to the question, "What makes you purr?"
