Lama’s writer speaks: Adele Hulse on creating “Big Love”

Author Adele Hulse talks about the creation of Lama Thubten Yeshe’s biography “Big Love.”  The talk was given in 2014 during the one-month retreat with Lama Zopa Rinpoche at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion near Bendigo, Australia.

This book has been over 20 years in the making, from the early beginnings of author Adele Hulse’s personal notes, to the fully designed, researched and edited chronicle that will be the finished product.

Ms. Hulse started writing this book in 1991, having been personally requested to do so long before by Lama Yeshe himself. She travelled the world interviewing all the hundreds of friends, acquaintances, colleagues and students of Lama Yeshe that she could find, and visiting many of the places Lama went to, including his home village in Tibet. The final product will be two volumes of around 600 pages each, with many glorious photos from the over 30,000 that have been collected from Lama’s students all over the world.
