Product Description

Review

Praise for The Dalai Lama's Cat: A truly heartwarming story that'll have you hooked from the first page. (Soul & Spirit magazine)

This enchanting story is a rare treat. I highly recommend it! (Gay Hendricks author of Conscious Living and The First Rule of Ten)

Some cat books are catnip for the soul but The Dalai Lama's Cat is best described as nirvana for the cat lover's soul. A transcendent book destined to be a classic. (CatWisdom101.com)

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We first met Snow Lion, a rather delightful feline, when she was rescued and joined the house of the Delai Lama in The Delai Lamas Cat. This is the next book in what will hopefully be a series, although it is certainly not necessary to have read the first book to appreciate this one. However, it is undoubtedly a book worth reading if you have not already done so.

In the preceding book, this rather charming and observant cat was looking at the main tenets of Buddhism and applying them to her own life. This time round she is given a task by the Delai Lama, when he leaves her to travel which is `what makes you purr'. In other words, what makes individuals happy and how to create the circumstances for happiness. Snow Lion does this, in part by observing others and in part by taking these lessons and relating them to her own life.

The author has put together an interesting formula here which certainly works. This could certainly be categorised as a self help book, but the messages are delivered in such a way that the reader understands them without the rigid delivery of a self help book. On another level this is all about the main principles of the Buddhist faith which are certainly worth studying as they contain a great deal of common sense. However, perhaps most importantly, overall it is a charming and whimsical tale about an appealing cat which cat lovers everywhere will relate to.

A wonderful light and easy read.
If you have read the Dalai Lama's Cat then you know how delightful HHC ( his Holiness's Cat) aka Rinpoche aka Snow Lion is. She was found by chance as a tiny thrown away kitten and through events described in the first book, she is now resident with the Dalai Lama. She also has her main hang out place in town at the Himalaya Book Cafe..... Hence her many names.
HHC is a clever and sensitive female cat who listens to the monks talking and is learning much wisdom from them, and from living with the Dalai Lama.
In this sequel some time has passed, and we find out that HHC has had a litter of kittens, but all have gone to new homes now.
There are some new human characters for HHC to delight with her feline beauty and for us the reader to enjoy in this magical blend of eastern wisdom and light heartedness.
I love the books, and will be happy to keep reading any more that Davis Michie writes as reading them lifts my spirits and hopefully some of the wisdom will rub off too. :-)

A deftly and addictively written foray into the life of a special cat, a cat dedicated to living with the Dalai Lama and his collective of monks. This lovely furry lady is on a special mission from the Sakai himself to find out just what makes one happy. We meet a host of likeable characters on her mission including a bookshop owner, a girl who runs a cafe, and the not so likeable dogs who chase the poor hrh kitty! It could be mawkish and over sentimentalised, but David is a warm, assured writer who brings in the subject of Tibetan mysticism and religion, without it being preachy or insufferable. I admit I bought it for the beautiful himmie on the front, and a novel about purring as an art, and am not religious, but I am deep, and it was as engaging and as comforting as a cuddle with a special feline friend.

This is the follow-up to David Michie's lovely 'The Dalai Lama's Cat' which told the story of how His Holiness came to give a home to the cat of the title. Like the first book, it is told entirely from the cat's viewpoint.
Also like the first book it also offers deep and meaningful reflection on Buddhist practice, presented in an enormously readable and charming format.
An ideal book for those new to Buddhism but it also offers much to think about for those of any faith, or no faith, in the way we interact with those around us, as it develops themes explored in the first book. It can also be read on its own for those not familiar with the predecessor.
Highly recommended.

The Dalai Lama's Cat captured me so I just had to read this. It is every bit as good. Similar in some ways but very different in others.
I am a science fiction fan who rarely strays to another genre and not really a cat lover, but David Michie has as far as reading is concerned converted me. I confess to having a little more admiration for cats too now.

I read the first book and just fell in love with the characters, the way David Michie writes is absolutely fantastic. You can tell he is not only a very knowledgeable buddhist and a great writer but a definite cat person. As soon as I read the Dalai Lama's cat I recommend it to my mum, and had to read the next one
straight away.

It's a fantastic story, the characters are alive on the page and you just want to spend more time with them. And HHC is just about hopping off the page, you just want to tickle her ears. Many times I found myself thinking, this guy must know my cat, that's the sort of thing she'd do/say.

The story is engrossing and gives you some good insights in to Buddhism and humanity but without trying, I absolutely love both stories and have recommended the books already to friends.

I will definitely read them again, I was only sad when I reached the last page and had to leave Dharamsala, hhc and her family behind. I hope Mr Michie is planning another book soon.
