Dalai Lama's Cat David Michie
One of my favourite books about the frailties of the human ego as seen through the eyes of a cat, not just any cat but rather one living at the feet of the Dalai Lama.
Her rise as an unwanted kitten facing death in the slums of New Delhi to one where she has her own royal purple cushion to sit on and many names as befits a cat with such heritage.
Humility she does not have and it is a lesson hard learned but with devotees such as Frank in his coffee shop building not only his ego but the cat's as well, many a twist and turn take place before the true meaning of Buddhism is realized.
Told in an irreverent, laugh out loud way David Michie has captured the essence of the spiritual journey and the traps that are set for us along the way - all seen through the eyes of a cat.
