Publisher's Summary

Siddhartha is Nobel Prize-winning author Hermann Hesse's most famous and influential work, a novel of self-exploration that will linger in your mind and spirit for a lifetime.A young man, blessed with loving parents and a safe home in a world where want and neglect abound, leaves this haven in search of himself. He joins the Samanas, a band of wandering ascetics without possessions or earthly ties. His quest unfulfilled, he descends into a life of unbounded luxury and indulgence. Where is truth? Where will his soul find true ease? In denial? In decadence? Or in some truth far greater than himself, so simple, so close to him, yet so obvious that only clear eyes may see it?
Siddhartha reawakens questions most of us have long ceased asking ourselves and opens paths to spirituality many of us have never traveled.
Translated by Joachim Neugroschel.

Heart and Mind opening

This book is a thoughtful insight into the importance of being present. There are many illustrations of our daily life such as patience, perspective, greed, hunger, lust, communication and intention that really come together at the end of the story to give meaning. My heart and mind are open in a different way because of this book. It's a gift! Treat yourself!
