Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic novel of self-discovery has inspired generations of seekers. With parallels to the enlightenment of the Buddha, Hesse's Siddhartha is the story of a young Brahmin's quest for the ultimate reality. His quest takes him from the extremes of indulgent sensuality to the rigors of ascetism and self-denial. At last he learns that wisdom cannot be taught — it must come from one's own experience and inner struggle. Steeped in the tenets of both psychoanalysis and Eastern mysticism, Siddhartha presents a strikingly original view of man and culture, and the arduous process of self-discovery that leads to reconciliation, harmony, and peace.

This is a book that I read when it was first published. I am so glad I picked it up again. It was just excellent! There is no point reviewing the book because that would mean one didn't get the point of the book at all! One learns that each time one reads the book one sees a different aspect of it.
