In a beautiful new Hardcover format, Happy is the One Who is Nothing is an Expanded edition of Letters to a Young Friend. This expanded edition includes selections from the Krishnamurti for the Young Series.
The New Chapters include:
Between 1948 and the early 1960s, Krishnamurti was easily accessible and many people came to him. On walks, in personal meetings, through letters, the relationships blossomed.
Happy Is the One Who Is Nothing collects together letters to a young friend who came to him wounded in body and mind. The letters, presented here in a beautifully gentle design, were written between June 1948 and March 1960. They reveal a rare compassion and clarity: the teaching and healing unfold; separation and distance disappear; the words flow; not a word is superfluous; the healing and teaching are simultaneous.
Happy Is the One Who Is Nothing is ideal as a gift for any loved one interested in non-duality and perspective-shifting spirituality, or to be treasured on your own shelf.

“Go into the unknown, take nothing for granted, do not assume anything, be free to find out.”
Teaches us that we are human beings first and not to isolate ourselves into nations. We have to change before the World can change.
Some things I agreed with, most things I did not.
Found the book personally talking to me and I am sure many will find that quality in this book. As always K comes out with a genuine care and affection to the person reading these letters. The short note to students at the end is a gem.
This is a collection of letters adressed to young students written by Krishnamurti, thus being a soft introduction to K's view. Here the topics are not thoroughly tackled, even though it is possible to understand his message satisfactorily. It may be a great first book to be introduced to Krishnamurti's sayings, and one may proceed later to other books, such as Freedom from the Known or Network of Thought.
Great read. Richness at its best.
