5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un livre délicieux 2 novembre 2012
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
L'histoire du chat du Dalaï Lama, racontée par le chat lui-même avec l'aide de David Michie.
Si vous aimez les chats, vous allez retrouver avec un plaisir intense les façons d'agir de ces merveilleuses créatures.
Si les chats ne vous intéressent pas particulièrement, vous trouverez néanmoins dans ce livre de quoi vous instruire tout en vous distrayant.
Car c'est là le grand attrait de ce livre: par petites touches délicates, l'auteur nous entraîne dans la découverte de ce personnage fascinant qu'est le Dalaï Lama; ses convictions, sa façon d'entrer en relation avec ceux qui l'entourent, ses méthodes d'éducation, sa générosité, son inépuisable compassion.
Vous rirez aussi car les conclusions du chat sont parfois surprenantes, très félines. Une certitude: jamais vous ne vous ennuierez en lisant ce livre.
PS: je lis actuellement ce livre sur iPhone et j'ai surligné tellement de passages intéressants ou émouvants que le texte est presque entièrement jaune!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming little book 15 août 2014
Par L. Fahy
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have a longish commute to work, so I am always looking for something interesting to read on my kindle. I try to vary the things I read as much as possible, and when I happened upon this little book I downloaded it straight away.

The idea is that you get a fly on the wall perspective of the dalai lama's teachings through the eyes of his cat, a bedraggled little stray he found in India. It is in keeping with the idea of the Japanese novel by Sōseki' 'I Am a Cat', in which a cat offers his commentary on the foibles of society though his unique perspective, inspired by the fact people do and say things around him that they would't do and say around other humans. The Dalai Lama's Cat is not a satire however, and rather than reveal the darker side of society here we see the good through the teachings of the Dalai Lama.

It's a short, enjoyable read that offers insights into the Dalai Lama's teachings in a unique way. Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Paws down, one of the best of 2012 8 octobre 2012
Par Michelle Fabio, Bleeding Espresso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Dalai Lama's Cat is written from the perspective of a (self-described) gorgeous Himalayan who was rescued by the Dalai Lama's staff and who spends copious amounts of time around His Holiness and those closest to him.

As you might imagine, "Bodhi catva" is privy to many spiritually intense conversations, and not only does she recount some the most important nuggets of Buddhism, she also applies the principles to her own life as she continues to strive to live up to her title of HHC (His Holiness's Cat). We also get a clue into the feline mind on issues such as playing the cello, "as we cats refer to that most delicate part of our grooming regimen when we attend to our nether regions."

Yes, there's a good dose of humor throughout the book as well.

I love me some anthropomorphism, and Michie pulls this off brilliantly. Both the premise and the writing are sharp, snappy, and clever; the story is warm and fulfilling. The lessons in Buddhist principles are an added, wonderful bonus because Michie, an established authority on Buddhism, not only shares them but also illustrates them in lighthearted, everyday situations to which anyone can relate.

I highlighted so many bits in my Kindle version, but one I want to leave you with is this, just in case the idea of reading a book about Buddhism, or any religion, puts you off: "The purpose of Buddhism is not to convert people. It is to give them tools so they can create greater happiness. So they can be happier Catholics, happier atheists, happier Buddhists."

Despite its deep topics, this book is an easy, enjoyable read; it reminds me a lot of Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist in that you can either fly through this for the story or stop at every page and think on what you've just read for hours, days, weeks, months, or years.

I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cats, is interested in learning more about mindfulness and other Buddhist principles, or who simply wants a great read. I couldn't love this book more, and I consider it an absolute must-read for 2012.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 True Cause 1 novembre 2012
Par Roni Teson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Dalai Lama's Cat is an outstanding read! I must say, initially I was not compelled to read this book. In fact, it travelled with me to Arizona and to Missouri with only a few pages read. What happened on the long plane ride home was simply not a coincidence. I fidgeted in my seat, Wi-Fi wasn't offered, my neighbor was drinking heavily, and I couldn't get situated--until I picked up the book and buried my head in the pages. After a few more pages, I was hooked!

You might NOT be a cat person, it's okay--don't let the name of this book deter you, and if you are a cat person--rejoice and turn the pages.

Wow, advise on happiness and living life in a novel that is filled with stories (within the story). Engaging daily situations that teach from the author's perception of the Dalai Lama's beliefs, or more specifically Buddhism. The book is also a pure example of learning through stories--so pleasant to have those `aha' moments shown in tale versus telling in a non-fiction instructional guide.

The tale (tail) begins with a kitten that is saved from the slums of New Delhi. A visual any reader can gain from the trailer of the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Am I shallow to say the hints throughout the book about famous people visiting the Dalai Lama kept me guessing and more than interested? Maybe a little, but I found it fascinating. Sharing the Dalai Lama's teachings within life's moments as seen through the eyes of the cat (who also learns from each happening!) and always on topics the reader can relate to. Although the work is fiction, I believe, the author, David Michie has an understanding of Buddhism, and does a fabulous job of spinning his tale with relevance toward today's times. Bravo! Well done.

In the early stages of the book a nun discusses her visit to a prison (this is when I became hooked) and how an inmate had a conversation with her and compared her own living situation with his. Ultimately, the inmate informed the nun, `if it all gets too hard' she could live with them. The nun was astonished that the inmate viewed the conditions in the nunnery harsher than his conditions in jail. And the Dalai Lama made a simple statement, "It's not the circumstances of our lives that make us happy or unhappy but the way we see them." Personally, something I've relearned throughout my life, and a topic that hits home with me when I remember my time in the `chemo' circle and the other folks with me.

My own immediate learning experience happened when the plane landed and I wasn't finished with the book! Had I not messed around for the entire first hour of that flight, and just picked up the book and read it--I would have been done, and satisfied. I can relate to HHC when she was taken to another location during the painting and refurbishing of the Dalai Lama's house, she behaved poorly. She hid under the blanket and did not step out of the room for a few days. On the day she finally stepped out--she met her `cat' friend, but was whisked away the following day, having no time to spend with her new friend. HHC identified that she robbed herself of the opportunity to spend time with her new friend--all over her ridiculous self-pity. Three days of sulking could have been spent with her new friend instead of wasted time hiding under the duvet.

Do you believe that every living being strives for happiness and wants to avoid all forms of suffering? And the True Cause of happiness is not from any physical external thing? Deep, isn't it? Well I like the way the Dalai Lama's cat handles these topics, and you will too.

I'm compelled to share with you what I learned about True Cause, but instead I will leave that as the title of this document and let you read the book, and discover for yourself the true cause of happiness (literally).

Lastly, I'm so enamored with this book because of my own personal experience. The content of these pages ring within my soul. And it's so simple!

When I was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and watched the pieces of my life fall away I gave in to the process. I had no choice. I had to deal with the cancer (and everything else in my life that fell apart), but I did have a choice about my attitude toward the battle--and ultimately isn't that the only thing you have control of--your own reaction? So I experienced some loss: my career, relationship, homes, finances, career, and for a while--my health. I made up my mind I would beat the cancer, but if for some reason I didn't make it--the time I had left would be wonderful. And that is how I won my battle.

Now, two years and seven months later--I have no sign of disease. I'm back in the thick of my life (a different life) and I thank you, David Michie, for reminding me of the importance of love and compassion and sharing with the world the simplicity of Buddhism and the fact that happiness is right here... as my Grandma would say, "Under your nose."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book sneaks up on you, it should really make you think 5 novembre 2012
Par Jadecat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I'm a sucker for books about cats or dogs, and the cover of this book is great, so I got it. I pretty much knew nothing about the Dalai Lama or about Buddhism before starting this book. The author writes the story from the vantage point of the cat, commonly known as HHC (His Holiness's Cat). It starts out with the cat/kitten finding her way into the life of the Dalai Lama and she is present while the Dalai Lama has meetings with all types of people. It is interesting because HHC finds herself in some type of quandary herself that parallels the issue the Dalai Lama discusses with his visitors, such as being unhappy or lonely. As the Lama 'enlightens' his visitor about their problem, HHC finds the solution and applies it to her own cat life. Of course, this stretches the imagination of how much a cat can think, but it is done very well and I really found myself enjoying the book and each lesson. Karma is talked about and explained which I found very interesting as I am always hearing that someone will get their karma after they do something wrong.

I think you have to have an open mind to get anything out of this book. I can honestly say I am very interested in learning more about the Dalai Lama and Buddhism after reading this book. Basically I was thinking it would be about meditating and forsaking good things in life, but it really is so much more. Admittedly I was woefully ignorant, but I hope to change that after reading this book. I heartily recommend reading this book, you might find a lot more in it than a cat story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Cute way to introduce Buddhism 15 novembre 2012
Par Mehetabelle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
It's an easy read. I've had pet cats for many years so I can attest that the author certainly knows cats. He weaves in their typically feline behaviors. I lived in a culture where a version of Buddhism was prominent so many of the ideas that this book introduces indeed resonate.

There are little pearls that made me think.
An Italian woman who've been cooking for the Dalai Lama for more than 20 years commented to him "you've never tried to convert me." His reply was something like Buddhism gives people tools to be happier, to be a better Catholic, better Muslim, better Buddhist. Wouldn't the world be better if religious zealots thought that way?

If you don't mind the cutsyness and simplistic presentation, you'll enjoy it. Maybe it'll be a good novel for teenagers?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "May all beings abide in peace and equanimity" 21 décembre 2012
Par Evelyn A. Getchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Sometimes a little light inspirational reading is the best antidote I can think of for the mental and emotional challenges that life can hurl. My favorite home remedy whenever I need to fix a broken heart has been to reach for a book of poetry or fiction and let my mind escape from myself for a while. Then I am ready to meditate - my best medicine for healing any ailment of the soul.

As an ardent cat lover with a special affection for His Holiness the Dalai Lama my eyes were drawn to this particular title many, many times during the past few months. But I also had some apprehension about reaching for a cat story, even a Buddhist cat story, that could possibly be too precious, too darling, too over the top with cuteness. No matter how willing I have been to suspend disbelief, I simply have never been one for the anthropomorphized narrator.

But three weeks ago I changed my attitude when I suffered a personal tragedy that left me utterly shattered - the death of the beloved feline child of my heart, my 14  year old cat, Karma.

The Dalai Lama's Cat has a beautiful dedication page in loving memory of the author's "own little Rinpoche" and it was this heartfelt dedication that made me surrender to this novel:

"She brought us joy; we loved her well.

May this book be a direct cause for her,
And all living beings, to quickly and easily
Attain complete enlightenment."

THE DALAI LAMA'S CAT is a simple and pleasant rendering of practical Tibetan Buddhist teachings watered down for the masses. David Michie has found a warm and tender formula for presenting and explaining these esoteric Buddhist principles through the perspective of a stray Himalayan cat who is adopted by His Holiness and becomes a medium between the inner sanctum of the Dalai Lama and the outside world of all other sentient beings.

The story is simple and perhaps a bit juvenile, often veering into the overly sentimental. I think it would be the perfect introduction to Buddhism for the younger reader and enjoyable by all cat lovers in general.

One of my favorite passages is this:

"...His Holiness burst out laughing. Taking her hand gently in his he told her, `The purpose of Buddhism is not to convert people. It is to give them tools so they can create greater happiness. So they can be happier Catholics, happier atheists, happier Buddhists..."

THE DALAI LAMA'S CAT may not be high literature but it will certainly put a smile on your face and lighten your heart. It did for me.
