My apologies if this review reeks of GUSHness However it gave me that ONE OF A KIND reading experience that doesn't come along often and so I think it is certainly worthy of the praise I shall heep upon it Beautifully written and a deeply personal story Hesse has created the ultimate expression of the journey of self discovery The book details the story of Siddhartha the young and brilliant son of a Brahmin in ancient India The Brahmin are the uber revered caste comprised of poets priests teachers and scholars uick Side Note How refreshing is it that their most revered group is not made up of morally uestionable athletes morally suspect celebrities and morally bankrupt politiciansI'm just saying At the beginning of the story despite having absorbed all of the teachings of his father and followed all of the religious rites and rituals of his caste Siddhartha is not content He knows deep inside that there is something missing and decides to leave his father and his future and seek enlightenment He sets out along with his life long friend to find life’s meaning A decision that makes Siddhartha’s father less than a happy camper Thus begins one of the truly exceptional stories in modern literature Siddhartha’s journey takes him from the elite of his people1 First to a group of ascetics who shun personal possessions and view the physical world as the source of all pain; 2 Next to a beautiful courtesan who teaches Siddhartha the mysterious of physical love to a world; 3 Third to a wealthy trader who teaches Siddhartha about profit trade and worldly pleasures; 4 Then to a life of hedonistic excess in which Siddhartha eats drinks gambles and indulges in numerous sexual conuests in a very SinCityesue way 5 Finally back to an ascetic life but one that embraces the world and everything in it as special and uniue Throughout the various stages of his journey Siddhartha finds something of value in everyone he interacts with and each stage brings him closer to his ultimate goal Through elegant and deeply evocative writing Hesse demonstrates through Siddhartha's journey the fundamental value of each and every person on Earth Everyone has something special to contribute to the universe Siddhartha's final realization of his goal of finding enlightenment is simply amazing and one that I can not recommend strongly that everyone readI'm a US citizen of Irish heritage living in Las Vegas I was raised Roman Catholic and spent most of my undergraduate and graduate academic life learning about western philosophy history and literature I mention the only because I was completely floored that I could identify so intensely with Siddhartha’s story despite a background that was as far from embracing an eastern viewpoint as you could possibly get I think its ability to completely suck me in demonstrates not only the brilliance and beauty of Hesse’s prose but also the universal nature of the story and its ability to transcend all barriers to understanding It is an amazing read but also a deeply personal one and I think that everyone will get something different out of reading it Hopefully it is something very very positive 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION

Il perfetto sorriso di Siddharta che ripete il «costante tranuillo fine impenetrabile forse benigno forse schernevole saggio multirugoso sorriso di Gotama il Buddha uale egli stesso l’aveva visto centinaia di volte con venerazione». Most religions know of it as Enlightenment when the individual transcends himself and sees himself as one with the ultimate reality It can be theistic the Aham Brahma Asmi I am the Brahman or Tat Tvam Asi Thou Art That of Hinduism or atheistic the Buddhist Nirvana based on the Anatman non soul; but the person who achieves it according to all sources is caught up in profound rapture To reach this stage one has to tread an arduous path Carl Gustav Jung called the process individuation Joseph Campbell called it the hero's journey Herman Hesse's eponymous protagonist of Siddhartha is a man who embarks on this enterpriseSiddhartha the handsome Brahmin youth who apparently has everything is dissatisfied with life with the whole pointlessness of it He leaves home with his friend Govinda and joins a group of ascetics the Samanas who have made renunciation a way of life However the true seeker he is Siddhartha finds that simple renunciation does not work for him he joins the Buddha in pursuit of enlightenment However he soon understands that whatever knowledge he must possess must be experiential Leaving Govinda to become a Buddhist ascetic Siddhartha buries himself in the sensual world across the river where Kamala the courtesan trains him up in the pleasures of the flesh and Kamaswami the merchant instructs him in the secrets of commerce Siddhartha soon tires of these too he returns to the river in penury not knowing that his child is growing within Kamala and is taken up by the aged boatman Vasudeva as a helperHere ferrying people across the river Siddhartha finally attains enlightenment not from a great teacher not from years of penanace and not even from the kindly Vasudeva even though he points the way but from the river Kamala's death and his son's abandonment of the stranger father completes his education as distress turns to peace Then it's time for Vasudeva the mentor to disappear leaving his student alone with the river What the river told Siddhartha The river flows and becomes one with the ocean The vapour from the ocean form into clouds and descend on the mountains becoming the river The river keeps on flowing it is inconstant ever renewing never the same yet it is eternal The river flows and the river is On its surface you can see the faces of all your loved ones whether alive dead or yet to be born In the roar of the river if you listen carefully you can hear the sacred AUM the first syllable outward the second one inward the third one silenceand the fourth one the all encompassing silence which bears the sound of the cosmic ocean in its wombHighly recommended

Siddhartha Eine indische DichtungMaestro non considera definitiva nessuna acuisizione Siddhartha Eine Epubperché ciò che va cercato è il tutto il misterioso tutto che si veste di mille volti cangianti E alla fine uel tutto la ruota delle apparenze rifluirà dietro. If I could turn back timeor perhaps pass through some portal which brings me face to face with my 14 year old self there are so many books I would recommend to little me grabbing my shoulders to shake my malnourished frame and insisting that I get to reading them as soon as effin possible instead of waiting until I'm too old and cynical and hyper critical to appreciate and relate to what they have to say If this ever iswas the case this time warp today I would probably see a lot novels as earth shattering and brain splattering magic rather than well pretty good stuff that I interrupted much better reading over the last two days to absorb for no good reason save for the mild satisfaction of completing a taskThe main wrong idea I had about this novel which had uite a bit to do with it taking so long for me to get around to reading it is that it's specifically about the Buddha I don't have to explain the reason for that misconception right Cool moving on I thought maybe it was like a biography or some sort of weird Hessian alt history or wellhonestly I didn't think about it very far beyond that and even those assumptions were fuzzily formed and essentially microscopic Fortunately Hesse takes his novel in a much engaging direction by focusing in on a formerly devout and self restricting member of the Samana movement who falls in love with a real Playboy Bunny™ of a gal a lusty little obsession which uickly moves him away from his faith and into her privates Drugs drink gambling greed and fornication ensue for years And years And years And yearsSome of you may be familiar with the place he eventually finds himself remorse self hatred what if's what if not's physical illness years of wasted time obsessive reflection ie largely pointless yet still horrifyingly circular cap D Dwelling nothing to show for your indulgences spiritually crushing and tooth grinding depression et mofuggin' cetera Was there still any kind of filth he had not soiled himself with a sin or foolish act he had not committed a dreariness of the soul he had not brought upon himself Was it still at all possible to be aliveA dark place no doubt Unfortunately this is the point where the book I was at first mildly bored with and then fully engaged in suddenly became just really fucking irritating Hesse takes the word slash concept Om and uses it as the ultimate and probably shortest named deus ex machina of all time in my personal brain library's dusty archives After spending unnumbered decades living like Robery Downey Sheen our protagonist sits by a river for I dunno a couple of minutes reciting Om before it just miraculously all comes back to him and he's all enlightened and at peace again and shit this is not even remotely the end of the novel so please don't spoiler mark me out of spite So wait what Not for nothin' but if I have even a mildly snaggle toothed hangover I practically reuire endless supplies of coffee and 800mg ibuprofen an animal andor person to cuddle with liuid b12 drops at least an entire season of some television drama to fall into and various plush surfaces to flail about on as I frantically loop Stuart Smalley uotes in my head just to keep the demons at bay Sure I am not enlightened and I know I sound like a total wimp right now especially compared to one so self disciplined as a monk type but I'd say his story of basically spending half a lifetime dipped in chocolately booze pools with naked bodies slithering all around him while he passed the glass n' rolled up dollar bill around gives new meaning to the phrase falling off the wagon Then again I guess being at one with the spiritual path could be sorta like riding a bike maybe I don't suppose my hair turns white from shock every time I hear about an Amish kid returning to his village après Rumspringa Anyway my point is that everything just happened so fast and I wasn't readyAll this nitpicking makes it sound like I didn't like the book even though I pretty much did Trite as the whole setting free the bird image was as in one character literally sets free a bird on the day her lover decides to leave her because it's symbolic my heartstrings did play a purdy song when Siddhartha and his gal split ways and everything that happened after the whole Om Affair did snap me back into the story I particularly dug the ending as there was ambiguity in a lot of the right places and the very last scene was uite lovely Read it young me Read it right after you get the almanac back from Biff Oh and speaking of the almanac you're definitely gonna want to hold on to that thing because honey let me tell you a little something about the world economy in the early 21st centuryHaha Cher's totally stuck in your head now Sucker
