Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂOh! How adorable! I didnÃ¢ÂÂt know you had a cat!Ã¢ÂÂ she exclaimed.
I am always surprised how many people make this observation. Why should His Holiness not have a cat?
Ã¢ÂÂIf only she could speak,Ã¢ÂÂ continued the actress. Ã¢ÂÂIÃ¢ÂÂm sure sheÃ¢ÂÂd have such wisdom to share.Ã¢ÂÂ
And so the seed was planted . . .
I began to think that perhaps the time had come for me to write a book of my ownÃ¢ÂÂa book that would convey some of the wisdom IÃ¢ÂÂve learned sitting not at the feet of the Dalai Lama but even closer, on his lap. A book that would tell my own tale . . . how I was rescued from a fate too grisly to contemplate to become the constant companion of a man who is not only one of the worldÃ¢ÂÂs greatest spiritual leaders and a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate but also a dab hand with a can opener.Ã¢ÂÂ
Starving and pitiful, a mud-smeared kitten is rescued from the slums of New Delhi and transported to a life she could have never imagined. In a beautiful sanctuary overlooking the snow-capped Himalayas, she begins her new life as the Dalai LamaÃ¢ÂÂs cat.
Warmhearted, irreverent, and wise, this cat of many names opens a window to the inner sanctum of life in Dharamsala. A tiny spy observing the constant flow of private meetings between His Holiness and everyone from Hollywood celebrities to philanthropists to self-help authors, the Dalai LamaÃ¢ÂÂs cat provides us with insights on how to find happiness and meaning in a busy, materialistic world. Her story will put a smile on the face of anyone who has been blessed by the kneading paws and bountiful purring of a cat.
