The Dalai Lama’s Cat

David Michie (2012)

If you want a light (and fluffy) introduction to some key Buddhist principles, this could be the book for you.

This furry tale is told through the eyes of a cat (Bodhicatva) rescued as a kitten by the Dalai Lama.  From her special position (the Dalai Lama’s window sill) she learns the fundamentals of Buddhist teachings and then applies them to her own life in a series of often funny adventures with the Dalai Lama, his staff and the people of the village.

“Just because an idea is simple, it isn’t necessarily easy to follow.  Purring in agreement with high-sounding principles meant nothing unless I actually lived by them”
