Book Description

“What makes you purr? Of all the questions in the world, this is the most important. . . . . Because no matter whether you are a playful kitten or sedentary senior, whether you’re a scrawny alley Tom, or 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.” His Holiness’s cat is back—older, a bit wiser, and as curious as ever. 

In this book, the Dalai Lama sets for his lovable feline companion the task of investigating The Art of Purring. Whether it’s the humorous insights gained from a visiting Ivy League Psychology Professor, the extraordinary research of a world-famous biologist, or the life-changing revelations of a mystical yogi, His Holiness’s Cat encounters a wealth of wisdom about happiness. And what she discovers changes the way she sees herself forever. With a much loved—and growing—cast of characters from the local community and His Holiness’s residence, as well as encounters with intriguing strangers and celebrities from far and wide, The Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring will transport readers in another unforgettable story. 

Along the way they will come to understand how elements of contemporary science and Buddhism converge. And, once again, they will feel the warmth of compassion and nonattachment that radiate from the heart of the Dalai Lama’s teachings about our quest for enduring happiness.

Book Review

This is a book that takes the story of His Holiness's Cat( HHC) further. We learn more about the characters we were introduced to in the previous book and of course each one teaches us a lesson. When the Dalai Lama leaves for an extended teaching tour, little Snow Lion is left with the mission to find out what makes her purr! Serena, Sam, Franc, Sid, Lobstang, Chogyal and a whole slew of characters continue to live lives around HHC and learn from mistakes of the past. Somewhere along the story you manage to pick up a whole lot of heavy philosophy without even realizing it. 

Beautifully written. Must read!
