art of purring coverThe Dalai Lama’s cat is back – older, a bit wiser and as curious as ever.

“What  makes you purr? Of all the questions in the world, this is the most  important… Because no matter whether you are a playful kitten or  sedentary senior, whether you’re a scrawny alley Tom, or sleek-coated  uptown girl, whatever your circumstances you just want to be happy. Not  the kind of happy that comes and goes like a can of flaked tuna, but an  enduring happiness. The deep down happiness that makes you purr from the  heart.”

In  this book, the Dalai Lama sets for his lovable feline companion the  task of investigating The Art of Purring. Whether it’s the humorous  insights gained from a visiting Ivy League Psychology Professor, the  extraordinary research of a world-famous biologist, or the life-changing  revelations of a mystical yogi, His Holiness’s Cat encounters a wealth  of wisdom about happiness. And what she discovers changes the way she  sees herself forever.

With  a much loved – and growing – cast of characters from the local community  and His Holiness’s residence, as well as encounters with intriguing  strangers and celebrities from far and wide, The Art of Purring  will transport readers in another unforgettable story. Along the way  they will come to understand how elements of contemporary science and  Buddhism converge. And, once again, they will feel the warmth of  compassion and non-attachment that radiate from the heart of the Dalai  Lama’s teachings about our quest for enduring happiness.

  1. It’s probably cheating to comment on this post, however, it caught my eye in general. I have never heard of The Art of Purring, but reading over this made me very curious to look it up and find out more about it. I’ve always enjoyed books regarding cats- and if they add in the so-to-speak “self help” factor, I find it useful as of late. The last cat book I read that I think you may enjoy as well, if you haven’t read it already, is Dewey.

  2. I was holding off on posting for this contest but you need more comments for this post. When I first read it one of my cats was in my lap and in a purring mood. She was a rescue and generally only purrs when she is attacking something but this time she was relaxing in my lap and purring. A cat purring in my lap makes me want to purr along with it!
