This one I read 4 others I've had as audio books and while reading I could hear David's voice the whole time. She has known my faith journey from growing up in a Jewish home, to becoming a Christian, and more recently my beginning to learn about the Buddhist teachings and my starting to meditate again, something I first learned to do some 40 odd years ago. Most interesting, my little Snow Lion,” the Dalai Lama remarked after a while as he closed his book and came over to stroke me.

There have been many touching moments for me throughout the story – you have conveyed the elusive nature of Dharma realisation very well. On his new pet, the Dalai Lama comments simply and wisely, without anthropomorphizing, that cats, as do all sentient beings including humans, want to be loved. HHC is still arrogant and is far too preoccupied with food to give out any major doses of affection, but she was an entertaining voice. Whilst this is, without a doubt, a story about what Buddhism teaches, it is not an exclusively religious story at all: it really is just the story of a cat who happens to be in Buddhist surrounds.Yes, the first two The Dalai Lama’s Cat books have already been translated into Italian and others are to follow. His books include The Art of Purring, The Dalai Lama's Cat, Buddhism for Busy People, Hurry Up and Meditate and Enlightenment to Go. Katės, kuri išgyvena egzistencines krizes, klausosi žmonių ir mokosi iš jų, analizuoja savo poelgius ir. Each encounter offers insight into finding happiness and meaning in the midst of lives that are busy and full of challenges.

What a joy to spend some intimate time with the Dalai Lama glimpsed through the devoted eyes of his adventurous cat, Mousie-Tung.

If you were to find yourself padding past an alcove concealed by a curtain, would your every instinct be to tug back the fabric—or, indeed, push under it—to see what lay behind? In fact, this quote from the book sums it up best; "The purpose of Buddhism is not to convert people.What this book does offer, however, is a multitude of honestly intriguing and thought-provoking life lessons; it is a quick and delightful read. Though the theme of the book is Buddhism, I believe it will appeal equally to the spiritual as well as the non-spiritual readers. David was born in Zimbabwe, educated at Rhodes University, South Africa, and lived in London for ten years. Featuring a delightful cast of characters, timeless Buddhist wisdom, and His Holiness’s compassion pervading every chapter, The Dalai Lama’s Cat is simply enchanting. You won't learn this from this book, but surprise, surprise - His Holiness Dalai Lama loves cats too!

For a feline with a coat as sumptuously absorbent as mine, and being somewhat wonky of gait, venturing out in wild weather is an exercise fraught with danger.The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk.

Like Connie, I also hope there will be more adventures and learning experiences for HHC, and for your readers. I’ve read numerous books about and by the Dalai Lama over the years, and I had the good fortune of hearing him speak twice. The nature of their various jobs had the same net effect: having to deal with enormous volumes of non-fiction as part of their working life meant that when it came to the weekend, or going on holiday, the last thing they wanted to do was read yet more non-fiction. If I had to summarize The Dalai Lama’s Cat in just a few words, they would be “Buddhism 101, brought to you by an adorable cat. How I was rescued from a fate too grisly to contemplate, to become constant companion to a man who is not only one of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, but who is also a dab hand with the can opener.The thought manifests as the word; the word manifests as the deed; the deed develops into habit; and habit hardens into character.
