"It is not for me to judge another man’s life.
I must judge, I must choose, I must spurn,
purely for myself. For myself, alone. " Based in the time of Gautama Buddha in India, this novel details a man’s journey to spiritual and mental enlightenment. Siddhartha, joined by his friend Govinda, leaves behind his home and family to embark upon his quest for spiritual illumination as an ascetic wandering beggar of the Shramanas.
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. Penned in a poetic yet powerful way by the Nobel Laureate Hermann Hesse in 1922, the book was originally written in German and then published in U.S. in 1951. It is considered as one of his most influential books on spirituality and wisdom. This book contains special quotes in the end, essay on Life of Buddha and its Lessons by H S Olcott and a detailed biography of Hermann Hesse
