I cannot wait for June to be able to read the last book in the trilogy, and find out what is in store for not only the cat but the characters we have been following.
HHC (His Holiness' Cat) with a special task -- to investigate the art of purring.

memoir to the staff of the Himalaya Book Cafe, the Dalai Lama's staff at Namgyal

the sem chens around you.
The premise of this book is that the Dalai Lama has a enlightened and wise cat (and I should mention that the book is a sequel to a previous book by this author) that the Dalai Lama asks the question of what makes happiness (or in cat speak - what makes you purr). From this premise, this book encumbers a number of great chapters that are good reading, but are also demonstrating lessons of Buddhist thought. This is a book that really made me think about life lessons and I really read this book rapidly.
A recommended read, and I am reading the previous book and looking forward to sequels.
