    What an endearing story! Truly a cat lover's book, and a nice introduction into Buddhism. Reading the book gave me pause to look at how I am living my life. What motivates my actions? what is my contribution to ending suffering and bringing happiness others

    more from this reviewer

    Ah, this is the life!!! Originally dumped in the street by unkin

    Ah, this is the life!!! Originally dumped in the street by unkind hooligans, this unkempt is meant to be sold into an even harsher life but instead is rescued by the Dalai Lama's Assistant. Now, he is HHC or "His Holiness's Cat" or Snow Lion...or some other embarrassing but funny names acquired as vital lessons in the path of holiness!

    Consider the fact of pride as "being" one of the favorites of this revered holy man, the Dalai Lama. A French chef who owns a very popular restaurant near the actual home of the Dalai Lama wears the symbols of his Buddhist initiation on his physical person and has them draped all over his restaurant. In a gently amusing way, he is gradually led to see that outer signs and associations matter not at all; the Dalai Lama always voices these lessons near to HHC with a chuckle and a pet. Meanwhile, HHC manages to keep his revered seat in the restaurant as HHC! You have to laugh and not just read the truth but feel it all in your own bones! Outstanding technique!

    So this book continues with visitor after visitor and numerous scenes where HHC mistakes the changes happening around him, always told in a wry, funny way endearing this cat and the Dalai Lama to the reader for the truth and blessing shared!

    Outstanding and so well done, more please, David Michie! This is "real" spirituality!
