Summary

A guide to enhancing our relationships with our pets through meditation and mindfulness, from best-selling author David Michie.

The bonds we share with our pets go beyond words and are often deeper than many of our human relationships. What is the nature of these close connections? And what if our influence on pets, both in life and especially through sickness and death, is far more powerful than we ever conceived?

David Michie draws on ancient Buddhist wisdom, supported by contemporary science, to provide fascinating insights into animal consciousness. He proposes that the pets with whom we share our lives are not there by accident. Whether your animal companion has fur, feathers or fins, he offers a treasury of practical tools to enhance your relationship with them in everyday life as well as during times of challenge.

Written with humour and compassion, and including extraordinary true stories from around the world, Buddhism for Pet Lovers reveals how our animal companions may indeed be among our most precious partners. For in helping them, our own lives are incomparably enriched too.

Excellent, concise explanations on Buddhist philosophy

Heart opening, poignant and enlightening book. I will listen to this a number of times, especially when it is time for any of my pets to leave this life they share with me. The author easily and concisely explains the egalitarian nature of all sentient life. I found it relaxing and grounding listening to the Buddhist teachings. I definitely understand Buddhism better having listened to this book and I would (will) recommend to others.
