Synopsis:
With parallels to the enlightenment of the Buddha, Hesse’s Siddhartha is the story of a young Brahmin’s quest for the ultimate reality. Steeped in the tenets of both psychoanalysis and Eastern mysticism, Siddhartha presents an original view of man and culture, and the arduous process of self-discovery that leads to reconciliation, harmony, and peace. The word Siddhartha is made up of two words in the Sanskrit language, siddha (gotten) artha (meaning or wealth). The two words together mean “one who has found meaning (of existence)” or “he who has attained his goals.” The Buddha’s name, before his renunciation, was Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Buddha. In this book, the Buddha is referred to as “Gotama.”
