Overview

Overview

For Naina Lepes, her master -- or mistress, in this case -- was a black-and-white stray cat she called Sweetie, who took up residence in her rooms at the Prashanti Nilayam ashram in India, and gave birth to kittens. The newness of the experience and the kittens -- Bhakti and Samah -- caused Naina to examine her spiritual beliefs and understanding of the world. Through her observations, her worries, and delights, we not only learn about the basic principles of Hinduism but we also learn to appreciate life and nature's incomparable beauty in all its surprises, big and little. Her photographs of the kittens and their mother are included in a color section. This charming story affirms that caring for animals teaches us love and compassion, and encourages us to open our hearts to a higher consciousness. This is how we all proceed upward beyond the biological evolutionary cycle into genuine spiritual evolution. A divine partnership is established to help us ascend the ladder of creation until we each embrace our God nature. We evolve both on the physical level of the body and the psychological level of the psyche -- from animal to human to divine. Then we discover our true home -- which exists always -- and we break the bonds of evolution.
