POWER OF MEOW by David Michie
This delightful easy read takes us to familiar places in Buddhist teachings but views them from a highly original place i.e. the window sill or the top of a bookcase. Following on from The Dalai Lama’s Cat this sequel finds HHC (His Holiness’s Cat) experiencing extreme suffering (a flea infestation) and becoming aware of how his mind flits about in random thoughts (mainly concerning bowls of chopped chicken liver). Through HHC we get to eavesdrop on the world’s greatest teacher of meditation and mindfulness and to observe the lives of other members of the Daramsala community. Light of touch yet profound this book proves there’s so much a cat can teach us.
