The Dali Lama’s Cat and The Art of Purring by David Michie
16/Clearly not 40 THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
Yes, dear reader, that’s the other reason we cats purr. Arguably, it’s the most important reason: to make you happy. Purring is our V- our way of reminding you that you are loved and special, and that you should never forget how we feel about you, even when your vulnerable.
This was a delightful read. From the perspective of the Dali Lama’s cat, we get a simple yet delightful story on what it means to be happy, finding happiness and what it takes. It follows after a cast of characters (for which you get the feel from Snow Lion) as they face their own journeys of achieving happiness. There was also alot about the proper way to make curry.
Filled with simple Buddhist teachings, this is kind of what I needed to read right now as I’m going through a rough patch emotionally. It said what I needed my heart to hear. Plus, it was sassy and quirky as only a cat could present it. XD It also went into alot of self meditation which I already do.
I highly recommend this book to the cat lover or if you want a simple outline on some Buddhist teachings. 🙂
