Description

Excerpt: ...his heart, losing and wasting his wretched money in the game brought him an angry joy, in no other way he could demonstrate his disdain for wealth, the merchants' false god, more clearly and more mockingly. Thus he gambled with high stakes and mercilessly, hating himself, mocking himself, won thousands, threw away thousands, lost money, lost jewelry, lost a house in the country, won again, lost again. That fear, that terrible and petrifying fear, which he felt while he was rolling the dice, while he was worried about losing high stakes, that fear he loved and sought to always renew it, always increase it, always get it to a slightly higher level, for in this feeling alone he still felt something like happiness, something like an intoxication, something like an elevated form of life in the midst of his saturated, lukewarm, dull life. And after each big loss, his mind was set on new riches, pursued the trade more zealously, forced his debtors more strictly to pay, because he wanted to continue gambling, he wanted to continue squandering, continue demonstrating his disdain of wealth. Siddhartha lost his calmness when losses occurred, lost his patience when he was not payed on time, lost his kindness towards beggars, lost his disposition for giving away and loaning money to those who petitioned him. He, who gambled away tens of thousands at one roll of the dice and laughed at it, became more strict and more petty in his business, occasionally dreaming at night about money And whenever he woke up from this ugly spell, whenever he found his face in the mirror at the bedroom's wall to have aged and become more ugly, whenever embarrassment and disgust came over him, he continued fleeing, fleeing into a new game, fleeing into a numbing of his mind brought on by sex, by wine, and from there he fled back into the urge to pile up and obtain possessions. In this pointless cycle he ran, growing tired, growing old, growing ill. Then the time came when a dream...

Guide you to find inner strength and potential.It tells you that wisdom can't be transferred, only knowledge can be transferred.Wisdom can be obtained by looking into own self and by practice meditation.As rightly said a person can't live fully Sansar life nor the Nirvana Life , its the medium path between the two and author shares his experience while living both lives.

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

This is a brilliant journey. Siddhartha is probably one of the finest philosophical books i've ever read. Herman Hesse really does know what to say to connect with the mind at once. This is not a religious journey at all. It is a journey to find one's self. Must read. Everybody!

I thought the book is about Buddha. But I was totally wrong. It was the story of a boy, named Siddhartha - like the title of the book - and how he reached his final goal - Nirvana... Note: Not recommended to everyone. The book has an higher meaning and it confuses and bores you to no end, if you dont understand the basic concept of Enlightenment... Hermann Hesse is a genius writer...
