It was the book I read it four years back And to tell the truth I did not liked it much at the time I thought this guy has written a book for western audience who are not familiar with the 'philosophy of karma and dharma' or rather in general the basic philosophy of India who after reading it will realize something esoteric And so it seemed to me a book containing wisdom that didn't touched me And I finished it with the verdict contains wisdom but lacks depth boring at times and do not grabs your heart and is not extra ordinary in any way But over the years I've come to understand that it is this ordinary ness that which makes this work exceptional It is the story of common man just like you and me who goes through the struggles of life He is a man who have the ualities that we all common man possess such as ambition greed possessiveness lust lying and etc And it was one day when I was pondering over the book I came to know that it was Hermann Hesse's own life that inspired him to write Siddhartha And it became clear to me why he has written the way it is written Then it dawned on me that it was all realistic happenings that the book pointed and not something esoteric Even the character Siddhartha as I came to realize was as fragile and incomplete imperfect as me or any common man Now I understand after many years that Hesse has written from the point of view of a common man not a protege like Buddha or Adi Shankaracharya And it is in this light of 'the struggle of a lay man' that this book comes in all its glory I mean in terms of wisdom and not in terms of reading pleasure And as the time is passing by I'm getting deeper and deeper into this book and understanding it betterHighly Recommended

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

Hermann Hesse É 8 Summary

Siddhartha Eine indische DichtungResentativa de este proceso y ha ejercido una gran influencia en la cultura occidental del siglo XX La verdadera profesion del hombre es encontrar el camino hacia si mismo Herman Hesse Premio Nobel de Literatura en. By the latter part of the 19th Century the colonial spread of European powers across the world was in full swing The British ruled India and Australia and had gone to war with China to force opium on the population Africa South America and the Philippines had been portioned out for Western rule and control of resourcesBut tyranny does not travel only in one direction from conueror to subject When Medieval European knights returned from the crusades they brought with them mathematical principles Greek and Roman texts and thus was the European Renaissance kindled by the Light of Islam Africans were brought to America as slaves but even being scattered and mistreated did not prevent them from changing the culture gifting us with blues jazz and African descended words like 'funk' 'mojo' 'boogie' and 'cool'It was the same with the colonial powers of the fin de siècle who brought back stories myths fashions art and philosophies from all over the world Many Europeans grew obsessed with these foreign religions finding in them both universal truths of human existence and completely new modes of thought Organizations like the Theosophical Society were formed to explore these religions it was all the rageBut there was a problem they got almost all of it wrongA Frenchman could spend his entire life learning the intricacies of Greek and Hebrew in order to study Catholicism its origins philosophies schisms heresies and history and still find that in the end there is much he does not know and that he'd made many errors along the way This despite the fact that his culture is already steeped in it he can go and speak to one of hundreds of experts any time he has a uestion and has access to a complete library of texts on the subject written in his own language and by people of a similar cultureNow imagine our 19th Century Gascon trying to do the same thing with Buddhism where not only the original texts on the subject but the histories and analyses are in not merely a foreign language but a completely different language branch where the experts are from a different culture and speak a different language and where the complexity and depth of history are just as vastIt's no wonder that the Theosophists and similar groups ended up with garbled mistranslated simplified versions that combined opposing schools of thought haphazardly As an old philosophy professor of mine once said You can learn a great deal about German Protestantism from reading Siddhartha but almost nothing about BuddhismWhat ultimately emerged from the Theosophist movement was not a branch of Western Buddhism but the 'New Age Movement' a grab bag of the same old Western ideas dressed up as mystical Oriental wisdom Indeed the central idea of the inane self help book 'The Secret' and of Siddhartha are the same the 'Law of Attraction' which is not a Buddhist principleLike most of Hesse's work it belongs in the 'Spiritual Self Help' section where vague handwaving and knowing looks are held in higher esteem than thought or insight It's the same nonspecific mysticism he shows us in The Journey To The East and The Glass Bead Game where the benefits of wisdom are indistinguishable from the symptoms of profound dementiaIf you want to understand Buddhism start somewhere else because you'd just have to unlearn all of Hesse's incorrect arguments and definitions Happily we have come a long way since Hesse's time with experts and commentaries in many different languages available to the avid student But if you'd like to see someone try to explain the principles of Lutheranism using only misused Hindu terms this may be the book for you
