    Description

    The Dalai Lama's Cat: A Novel lets the reader have a peek at the wonderful life of the Dalai Lama’s pet cat, who also shares some of the profound lessons that she hears from the spiritual leader.

    Summary Of The Book

    Being The Dalai Lama's Cat is a privilege as the cat readily admits. But her early days were not so fortunate.

    A litter of beautiful Himalayan kittens is discovered by some street children in New Delhi. They decide that the little creatures can make them some money. They quickly manage to sell all the kittens but one, the tiniest and weakest of the lot. The little kitten gets dropped into a mud puddle and ends up being wrapped up in a newspaper.

    Fortunately for the kitten, the Dalai Lama, on his way home from the airport, watches the incident and sends his attendant to buy the little creature from the boys. Thus begins the life of the little kitten as His Holiness’s fond companion. She now lives a pampered life, being admired and petted by celebrities as well as regular visitors who come to see the Dalai Lama.

    Fondly called “bodhicatva” by the Dalai Lama, she is privy to all his affairs as she lies regally in his room and observes visitors as they come and go. In the process, she also tries to imbibe the wisdom he imparts to the people who come to him, in order to be worthy of the privilege of being His Holiness’s cat.

    In The Dalai Lama's Cat: A Novel, she shares some of these lessons that she learnt with the reader, as she talks about her life and times as the well loved feline inhabitant of the Dalai Lama’s home.

    The author has done a delightful job of blending the feline psyche with the wisdom of Buddhism. The Dalai Lama's Cat: A Novel shares many nuggets of His Holiness’s conversations with visitors, in the middle of a lot of native feline perspectives on life.

    Amazing book.. Made me see life from a different perspective..

    A beautifully written book with just the right dose of humour to make it a delightful read. The book gives a nice insight into the life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the relationship he shares with his little feline companion who is always up to mischief.
    I will advice all of you to definitely go through this book once it will change your perspective towards life.

    Awesome Book

    I am not a very religious person… nor am I the types to subscribe to any spiritual beliefs. My only contact with god is when I feel thankful or when I need something very badly… spirituality is something I have always avoided. I don’t like hearing/reading or learning about it.

    When I picked up this book, it was only cause the title intrigued me. If I had known it would contain spiritual or philosophical learnings, I would have never ever bought this book ( yeah.. I am weird in this sense). B...

    Great read!

    I recently got interested in doing a Kailash and Manasarowar parikrama. So as we were researching about how to get the Chinese visa to enter Tibet, I also started reading more about Tibet. Now everyone knows that the Tibetan Government is in exile in Dharamsala, but I was never much bothered or concerned about them. My research led me to read 3 books and Tibet and I accidently stumbled upon this one. And my, my! What a book! Succint and well researched, this book appeals to the reader from th...

    Goodness level : Epic

    Not only that this book gives you an abstract idea about what it is like to "live" than to "survive"; but is also one of those books you read with a cup of coffee, legs raised on an ottoman, during a rainy morning.
    A must read for anyone who loves to read about the lush green richness of life.
