'If you ever doubted that your feline companion has her own inner life, just watch what happens when she falls asleep, and loses conscious control of her physical being . . . a twitching of limbs, a quivering of the jaw, sometimes, perhaps, a snuffling noise or a meow . . . Cats may indeed be capable of great mindfulness, but we are thinking beings, too. In my own case, unfortunately, a being who thinks rather too much.' In the latest installment of the Dalai Lama's Cat series, His Holiness's Cat ('HHC') is on a mission- to think less, to experience more, to live in the moment. She soon learns the proper phrase for this, being mindful, or, a concept better known to her as the power of meow. What ensues is a journey to discover her own true nature, to gain a deeper understanding of her mind, and to experience life's greatest joy, the here and now. Throughout, she shares encounters with familiar inhabitants of Dharamsala, as well as a whole new cast of characters- a senior exec from one of Silicon Valley's most famous social media companies (hint- the name rhymes with 'litter'), the Pope's beloved dog (who shares a shockingly similar title- HHD, His Holiness's Dog), and a public health inspector who threatens to have our poor narrator banned from the Himalaya Book Cafe. In this follow-up to The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring, readers escape to the enchanting and exotic world of the Dalai Lama's monastery in the Himalayas, and take a peek inside the mind of a delightfully imperfect creature on the path to enlightenment. By accompanying HHC on her journey, you will learn new ways to relate to your own mind- slowing down, finding peace, and abiding in the boundless radiance and benevolence that is your own true nature.
