Description'In the months that followed I watched His Holiness working on a new book...I began to think that perhaps the time had come for me to turn my paws to a book of my own ...one that tells my own tale...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'. Not so much fly-on-the-wall as cat-on-the-sill, this is the warm-hearted tale of a small kitten rescued from the slums of New Delhi who finds herself in a beautiful sanctuary with sweeping views of the snow-capped Himalayas. In her exotic new home, the Dalai Lama's cat encounters Hollywood stars, Buddhist masters, Ivy-league professors, famous philanthropists, and a host of other people who come visiting His Holiness. Each encounter offers a fresh insight into finding happiness and meaning in the midst of a life of busy-ness and challenge. Drawing us into her world with her adorable but all-too-flawed personality, the Dalai Lama's cat discovers how instead of trying to change the world, changing the way we experience the world is the key to true contentment. Featuring a delightful cast of characters, timeless Buddhist wisdom, and His Holiness' compassion pervading every chapter, "The Dalai Lama's Cat" is simply enchanting.

Reviews for The Dalai Lama's Cat
Story which makes you think about life
This story is more than the story of a cat. It makes you think about life and the decisions you make. It has some great lines with a deeper meaning, and I really like that about this book. Told trough the eyes of the cat, it gives this book a humorous twist that it needs. by Inne Van Houdt
