aha!

I figured out why i need to wear my zen more, it gives me a place to hide the mala when in use from the cat who keeps trying to grab the fun bead toy the human is playing with *again*.
Phenomenon, vast as space, dharmata is your base, arising and falling like ocean tide cycles, why do i cling to your illusion of unceasing changlessness?

You never read the Sutra where Lord Buddha specifically forbids
maintaining affection for these demon-cat beings? ;)

Renounce such evil. They are Mamos in disguise, obstructors! <clap>
Run away!

Truly! They don't like you to have your attention elsewhere...

Because, if our mothers, who have been kind to us
From beginningless time, are suffering,

Very true, she also likes to try and insert her cute little cat head in the middle of a meditation mudra. She will head-butt my hands until one hand scratches the cat head behind the ears. I'll admit i probably encourage the behaviour by giving into her, but when you glance down and she's giving me the big kitten eyes, how can one resist?

My personel theory is that this contact will benefit the cat for her next life.
As long as the meditation is better than the distrubing. :smile:

Meditation is pretty light-hearted with a purring kitty in your lap, or a purring cat trying to steal your mala. She keeps me from taking things too seriously. And i like to think she's making some good dharma connections, she is definitely attracted to ritual objects.
