Summary

In the latest installment of the Dalai Lama's Cat series, His Holiness' 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' Dog), and a public health inspector who threatens to have our poor narrator banned from the Himalaya Book Café.

In this follow-up to The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring, listeners can 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.

More Joy and Enlightenment from the Dalai Lama’s Cat

The 3rd of these exceptional warm, entertaining yet powerful adventures of the Dalai Lama’s Cat.
I am already hoping for a fourth instalment.
I wholeheartedly recommend that you read these books. I have gained so much joy and enlightenment from them.
As a novice meditator they have helped inform me and keep my sense of meditation purpose on track.
As a general reader the adventures of the Dalai Lama’s Cat are so beautifully told that would appeal to anyone who enjoys a fantastic read.

Fabulous set of books

I absolutely love this whole series of books, and I am really sad that they have come to an end. I'm really hoping that there will be a new one in the series.. These books are soft and gentle, informative and inspiring. I thoroughly enjoy them all

HHC...a purrfect companion

I have become a real fan of David Michie, starting with Buddhism for Busy People, then working my way through the Dalai Lama's cat trilogy, as I walk my dog every morning!

These gentle texts have moved me closer to meditation practices and inspired me to continue, long after my impatient monkey mind is ready to give up! I'm delighted to have found more David Michie books, so I can continue my journey.

Thank you, David...and HHC

Is a Sequel Coming? I Hope So!

This is the third, and so far last, book of the Dalai Lama's Cat series. Because new characters are added throughout the series, while the original characters remain and change, the stories' pace quickens through the series. It's still perfect, in my opinion, both the author's narration and the story itself.

A couple of points to ponder: One is that if you decide to listen to and/or read this series, begin with Book One and take them in sequence. Otherwise, much of it won't make sense, which would be a shame.

Another point is that I don't know if another sequel is planned, but I certainly hope so. This book introduces you to many interesting characters and continues the storylines begun in the earlier books, but leaves many loose ends. For that reason, I hope that the series is continued. We'll have to wait and see.

The Power of Meow, book 3 in a fun teaching series

Hopefully you have started with book 1 and also read book 2 of this series. The story line is excellent because the author is a keen observer of felines and humans, and canines too.

The life lessons that are included within the story are brilliant choices and there was one lesson in one of the 3 books that resulted in instant recognition and some reflection on my interactions with people and poor choices I have made - and recognition may help me behave better in the future.

There are many threads woven into the saga, and the one about reincarnation and the same people and animals incarnating into subsequent lifetimes was fascinating.

The bonus, of course, is the gentle teaching about meditation and its benefits, and the practical teaching of meditation too.

Beautifully narrated, professionally produced, a real pleasure to listen to.

he knows his cats

excellent for putting the challenges of beginning meditation into practical positive steps for success. Even better if you have read the others in the series.

I Want More!!!

These are the best books I've read in years. I've read all 3 numerous times & just keep on learning. This is where I began meditating & learning a nonviolent way of resolving conflicts.
