Jaffa's Sunday Corner..

Cat themed reading for the discerning feline

This week Jaffa has been immersed in this beautiful story 


The Dalai Lama's Cat
October 1st 2012 by Hay House Visions

On the surface, this is the delightful story of the Dalai Lama’s cat, a cat of many names, who when rescued from the slums of New Delhi, goes on to find comfort and an intellectual home amongst the philosophers and teachers who inhabit the inner sanctum of the Dalai Lama. However, underneath this whimsical tale of feline adventure, there is also the added bonus of some rather special Buddhist philosophy, and an introduction into the world of this enigmatic spiritual leader.

Author David Michie is already an authority on Buddhist teaching; in this book he uses a light hearted and humorous approach to illustrate beliefs and attitudes into not just the human psyche, but also into how much we can learn from observing the karma of animal kingdom. The warmth and wisdom of the narrative, make this a very easy book to read, in fact it’s one of those stories that you can dip into and out of, and still find something meaningful amongst the pages.

We share the same two basic wishes: the wish to enjoy happiness and the wish to avoid suffering”
