Overview

What makes you purr?
Of all the questions in the world, this is the most important. It is also the great leveler. Because no matter whether you are a playful kitten or a sedentary senior, a scrawny alley Tom or a sleek-coated uptown girl, whatever your circumstances, you just want to be happy. Not the kind of happy that comes and goes like a can of flaked tuna but an enduring happiness. The deep-down happiness that makes you purr from the heart.
 
     Before leaving for a teaching tour to America, the Dalai Lama poses a challenge to his beloved feline, HHC (His Holiness’s Cat): to discover the true cause of happiness. Little does she know what adventures this task will bring!
     A hair-raising chase through the streets of McLeod Ganj leads to an unexpected revelation about the perils of self-obsession. An encounter with the mystical Yogi Tarchen inspires a breakthrough discovery about her past—one with dramatic implications for us all. And overheard conversations between ivy-league psychologists, high-ranking lamas, and famous writers who congregate at the Himalaya Book Café help her explore the convergence between science and Buddhism on the vital subject of happiness.
     Sparkling with wisdom, warmth, and a touch of mischief, The Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring is a charming reminder of why HHC is becoming one of the most-loved cats around the world.
So what is the true cause of purring? The Dalai Lama whispers this secret on his return—only for the ears of HHC and those with whom she has a karmic connection . . . that, dear reader, means you!

    "The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring" by David

    "The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring" by David Michie

    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, and learn something, and come away looking at things a little differently than before. 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! And I like to think the book opened him up to some higher thoughts and ideals. Hint...hint....if you have someone in your life you would love to share some spiritual ideals with and they are just not open to them, get them a copy of this book for Christmas!

    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?"

    *FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.

    The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring is the 2nd book in w

    The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring is the 2nd book in writer David Michie's series, and it is a great book! If you love cats, and if you are interested in the Buddhist philosophy, you will find this book both sweet and entertaining. I say get both of the books and read them in order. You will be purring yourself!
