What if cats are secretly Buddhist monks?

The journey into the secret lives of Buddhist cats started with a mysterious note that led the author on a journey halfway around the world. He discovered a hidden Buddhist temple in the mountains that was the center of a secret society of Buddhist cat monastics.

Revealed to humans for the first time in this book will be their ancient Buddhist teachings of the “Kitten Eightfold Path“, the “Purring Sutra“, the “Ten Kitten Herding Pictures“, the real reason why cats knock drinking glasses off tables, and much more.

As you will soon learn, the “typical house cat” is anything but typical…they are Buddhist masters! Passed down for generations, the Buddhism Secrets of Cats is a highly skilled practice that cats are taught when they are kittens and practice for a lifetime. You will never look at your kitty the same way after learning their behaviors are actually Buddhist techniques!

But a word of extreme caution before you read this book: never say where you found these feline Buddhist secrets, or you may find yourself facing rebirth as a puppy and spending your life sniffing other dogs…um…well, never mind.

If you are a Buddhist (or interested in Buddhism), and like cats, this is your book! 😻
