  • Description

    Siddhartha is an allegorical novel written by the Nobel Laureate, Hermann Hesse. It deals with the spiritual journey of an Indian boy called Siddhartha during the time of the Buddha.

    Summary of the Book

    This title was originally written in German, in a simple, yet powerful and lyrical style. It was first published in the year 1922 after Hesse had spent some time in India in the 1910s. The story revolves around a young Indian man who leaves his home and family in search for meaning and truth. The spiritual quest takes him from the austerities of renunciation to the profligacy of prosperity. It makes him experience a wide range of human experiences - from hunger and want to passion, pleasure, pain, greed, yearning, boredom, love, despair and hope. The journey ultimately leads him to the river, where he gains peace and eventually wisdom.

    About Hermann Hesse

    Hermann Hesse was a German-born Swiss poet and author, best known for writing the novels Steppenwolf, Siddhartha (the current title), and The Glass Bead Game. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946. His themes focus on man's struggle to break away from the rigid structures of civilisation and follow his essential and inner spirit. For this, Hesse became a literary cult figure.

    Buddha, Advertising and Confusion

    Even after knowing that this book was not about the life story of Buddha (as the name used and the cover image) I ordered this book.
    This story may seem interesting for novel readers but someone who know the life story of Buddha and his awakening would know the story is definitely influenced and at some 2-3 places tries to even question Buddhism (I completely respect that because we all have the right to question what we feel is UN-satisfactory).
    But the author himself contradicts in many pla...

    Highly Recommended for everyone with mind, soul and heart

    At some point or the other, We have all asked ourselves the fundamental question, ''How do we find lasting peace? Why we suffer the way we do and is there a way out for cessation of suffering?''

    All the religions of the world have explored the answer to the question in their own unique styles. Some have tried to answer it from within and some from without. As Hesse intelligently points out that we often try to simplify the question for finding the answer to it while within and without are o...

    Enlightment & Inspiration takes the toll

    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 reading......it'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 'i...

    Short sweet and uneasy to digest..

    Best book for people who are in search of a good book like Fountainhead this will work. And dont compare Siddhartha with Gautam Buddha.

    Good Story, Important Message

    Hermann Hesse certainly knows a thing or two about spirituality and self discovery. He blends the two seemingly interlaced topics into an equally interlaced tale of confusion and clarity with his simplistic writing accessible to anyone with basic reading abilities in the language (English).

    Siddhartha, the main protagonist, is quite clear about what he wants but comes across as someone perpetually confused about how he can attain that what he wants. He is a refreshing character who does not ...

    One of Hermann Hesse best work

    I started reading this after being recommended by a friend and although not a never put down book, I could finish it in few days during my free time. Definitely recommend it for people who keep seeking the meaning of life and who wants to know what might have Goutama gone through to attain that bliss.

    Awesome Book

    I started reading this book with lot of expectations and believe me it had delivered beyond my expectations. Starting was good but in middle felt author is loosing the grip but towards the end it was so fantastic, I read last few pages twice. Loved it , I seriously recommend this book who is looking for good philosophical content. Be like a river and chant holy Ohm ! God Bless you all !
