Featuring a delightful cast of characters and timeless Buddhist wisdom, and with His Holiness' compassion pervading every chapter, The Dalai Lama's Cat is simply enchanting. Not so much fly-on-the-wall as cat-on-the-sill, this is the warmhearted tale of a small kitten rescued from the slums of New Delhi who finds herself in a beautiful sanctuary with sweeping views of the snowcapped 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 busyness 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.

Standing roll down and breath counting

Even better than Michie's nonfiction Buddhist book
Best Listen so far this year!
This book captures your heart and your mind. I have read all 3 now and my 13 yr old son just finished this one too and immediately downloaded the 2nd. We love the brilliant narrative of this little Himalayan cat, who is on a path through life similar to all creatures - and surprisingly, we can relate!
While there is no question my son and I both love the little Snow Lion, he feels an affinity for Sam and I do love Mrs. Trencci.
I loved how she came to meet up with her Tom Cat - needing to overcome her aversions to non familiar places.
The Dalai Lama - as I am sure it would be - cativating!
