Big Love, the official, authorized biography of Lama Yeshe contains personal stories of the lamas and the students who learned, lived and traveled with them, as well as more than 1,500 photos dating back to the 1960s.
The book tells the story of Lama Yeshe, how he met Lama Zopa Rinpoche and how they created the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), one of the world's largest Tibetan Buddhist organizations. It begins in Tibet, where Lama was born, and moves to Buxaduar refugee camp in West Bengal, where Rinpoche became his student, to other parts of India and Nepal, and finally to the entire world.
The author, Adele Hulse, one of Lama's earliest students, highlights his special connection with early Dharma seekers and skillfully weaves their intimate stories with details of where Lama went, the teachings he gave and the centers he started. It brings to life how special he was and how he connected with people from all over the world and all walks of life.
If you knew Lama, you will be reminded of his wisdom and charisma; if you did not, this is the perfect introduction.
