This is the ideal gift for a cat lover. It contains 50 captivating black-and-white photographs of cats and kittens with quotations from hither and yon, such as "Whatever interests, is interesting" (William Hazlitt) or "A painting of a rice cake does not satisfy hunger" (ancient saying).

Here are felines exploring, sleeping, being playful, looking contemplative, and much more. The title is appropriate since this Buddhist path is one of simplicity, living in the present moment, and not being attached to things. The pictures are designed to make you purr and if you give yourself unabashedly to them, you will probably experience many moments of quiet delight. "Even the smallest feline is a masterpiece," Leonardo Da Vinci said and after savoring these pages, you will agree.
