Tuesday Lobsang Rampa – Living with the Lama (644.0 Kb)
Living with the Lama: This book is NOT a work of fiction, but was transmitted wiyh the author via livjng telepathy from his pet cat — yes! I sat and pondered. True, that I am a Cat, but not an ordinary cat. I am a Siamese Cat who has traveled far and seen much. I am quite ramla now, and have to rely on the Lama to tell me of the present scene, but I have my memories! Of course, I am old, very old indeed, and not a little infirm, but is that not good reason why I should put on paper the events of my life, while I am able?
Here, then, is my version of Living with the Lama, and the happiest days of my life; days of sunshine after a lifetime of shadows. Paperbackpages.

Aug 18, Maria Carmo rated it really liked it. I loving this book years ago and I really enjoyed the clever way in which the Lama’s Cat “writes” it’s own Diary, telepathically transmitted to the Lama It has the unique but credible perspective of a Cat, is weel written and livint as a story and has a subtle sense of humor! Definitely a good read. Mar 09, S’hi rated it liked it Shelves: The novelty of a psychic cat dictating to a Tibetan Lama who is under great public pressure for his claims about his extraordinary life surely open up the whole concept of possession as proposed by spiritualism.
Surely if you do not believe anything that Lobsang Rampa writes you would not be reading his books. If you are not getting anything out of his unique perspective on the world an The novelty of a psychic cat dictating to a Tibetan Lama lams is under great public pressure for his claims about his extraordinary life surely open up the whole concept of possession as proposed by spiritualism.
If you are not getting anything out of his unique perspective on the world and its possibilities, why would you lam wasting your precious life energy arguing with such a writer? Here is both the humour that survival requires and the sensible continuance of a story by someone who is obviously living with the proceeds of the Lama, no matter how limited they may be. Perspectives about the writing life and its poor returns on time invested are equally valid reasons for reading as are lpbsang unusual glimpses of ordinary life amid a continuing saga of the most unbelievable transformation of an Englishman through psychic transplant.
If nothing else kobsang books are definitely about survival. Been a fan of this booknfor years As a child, I found a copy of this book among my mother’s old books and read it so livinf that it fell apart. Feb 08, Jim Conant rated it it was ok.
Living with the Lama: 25 Years with Lobsang Rampa by Tuesday Lobsang Rampa
I saw this book in a used book store and the author’s name caught my eye, since I recognized “Lobsang” as a Tibetan name. The book store’s owner told me that “he’s a total fraud.
He’s like Carlos Casteneda. He made everything up. The fact that the author is supposedly a Tibetan Lama doesn’t really figure into the book lliving.
Lobsang Rampa – Wikipedia
It is nominally told from the perspective of a cat, and there are some charming moments. However, yhe the most part nothing in p I saw this book in a used book store and the author’s name caught my eye, since I recognized “Lobsang” as a Tibetan name.
However, for the most part nothing in particular happens. The “Lama” who is referred to as “the Guv” in the story leaves Ireland because he’s angry about paying too many taxes. Then he gets to Canada and complains about the local officials there. At one point he is visited by an Astral Traveler who instructs him to write his next book, but you’d think a lama would be doing things like meditation and projecting peace, rather than complaining about how unfairly life treats him.
The author seems like he’s a bit nuts. He’s genuinely trying to maintain the pretense that he is a Lama, yet offers up a book told to him telepathically by a rrampa.
May 03, Maja Lange rated it it was ok Shelves: Pretty much the only thing this book has got going for it is its basic premise; the idea of writing a book from a cat’s perspective is somewhat interesting. The story in itself, however, is not. The first few wuth hold some promise, but it goes downhill from rajpa. From a rather early point onwards, it’s all “And then we bought a new car, but it turned out not to be to our satisfaction, so we bought another one, and then we got tired of living liging we were wiht, so we moved somewhere else Pretty much the only thing this book has got going for it is its basic premise; the idea of writing a book from a cat’s perspective is somewhat interesting.
From a rather early point onwards, it’s all “And then we bought a new car, but it turned out not to be to our satisfaction, so we bought another one, and then we got tired of living where we were living, so we moved somewhere else, and then we moved again and bought another car, which then had to be repaired” I guess there’s a hint of charm to be found here and there along the way, but not enough to make up for the lack of both entertainment, atmosphere and substance.
I’m not impressed with the technical aspect of the writing either. The author quite frequently seems to forget what he just wrote, which leads to inconsistencies of various kinds.
Even worse, the author seems to sometimes forget that one of the characters is blind; he has her mentioning things as if she were seeing them. I did “rescue” this one from Amazon or whomever as I have a paperback at my housepublished latest edition but goes back to the ‘s has Siamese cat resting precariously on bald head in picture on front cover which I may try to upload later.
I didn’t try to compare with other book with same title but subtitled 25 years etc. Yes I enjoyed all the Rampa books to varying degrees. Apr 05, Faye rated it it was amazing. I read this book when I was about 13 years old and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I still have the same copy.
It was my first introduction to literature that wasn’t written for kids and I remember not being ablue to put it down. I’ve the years I have borrowed the book to other who’re much older then o was when I read it and they didn’t shre the enthusiasm. Maybe I enjoyed it as much as I did because I was a kid, I’m not sure, but it stil think it was great book and would happily read it again.
Feb 14, Devo rated it it was ok. I was desperate for an English language book while in thailand and picked this up in a second hand shop there. I thought it looked pretty funny since it’s written narratively from his rmpa perspective; Ms Fifi Greywhiskers Actually, the beginning chapters of his cat’s life would make for a cute and cruel ,ama book.
Dec 30, Mauricio rated it really liked it. Great book to educate people about the importance of animals and how similar they could be to us. Protecting animals and environments should be part of every human being. A little boring at the middle end but with a heart-touch ending. I will definitely recommend to kids who are starting into reading. View all 3 comments. May 24, Linda R rated it really liked it.
