Overview: Siddhartha

Siddhartha, written by Herman Hesse, is a book that follows the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha. Published in the year 1922, the first edition of this novel was written in German, with a simple allegorical style.

About the book

The plot of Siddhartha, traces the journey of the main character from being a simple son of a Brahmin to gaining wisdom through spiritual enlightenment. The story begins with Siddhartha renouncing all the worldly possessions and embarking on a journey of spiritual illumination. He leaves behind his family and in the company of his best friend Govinda, wanders like a beggar, fasts and meditates. Ultimately, the two friends speak with Gautam Buddha, the Enlightened One. While both acknowledge the teachings of Buddha as being supremely wise, only Govinda joins Buddha's order. Siddhartha, on the other hand, feels that every man should find his own path to enlightenment and carries on with his quest.

In this quest, the protagonist experiences a range of human emotions and desires after discarding the life of spirituality for one filled with passion, greed, love, lust, hunger, boredom and ultimately despair. He relinquishes this life to embark once again on a journey of seeking and eventually gaining peace and wisdom.

     The shortest Must-Read Book 25 July, 2013 On
    Without giving away the plot - I could vouch for the book being an interesting, intense read.

    How the book talks about the ground realities of life in less than 200 pages is awe-inspiring! What you take away at the end of the book is how ultimately life comes a full circle, irrespective of where you start and what you do!

    However, the book is anything but philosophical, over-the-head or surreal. You can just pick up the book, enjoy your hot mug of coffee and appreciate the depth of the story without being overwhelmed by it.

    Hope you enjoy it as well!

  2.  Enlightment & Inspiration takes the toll 2 April, 2013 On
    Though the first chapter "The Brahmin's Son" (of Part one) will lead you like written with dictionary referenced wordings.......but as you go on's a real piece of enlightment and inspiration (altogether)........I won't call it beautifully written......but written in such an arranged manner......that you real one paragraph within 2 mins and think about it (referencing with your personal life and thoughts) the other five minutes.......deserves being the bestseller......people 'in need of TRUE HAPPINESS', 'EASILY BORED', 'need MENTAL SUPPORT', 'seeking for a piece of well written LITERATURE' should grab the same at once........the paper quality is fine-tuned with the literature style (offering yu a vedic sence)..........((^_^))
