Publisher Description

Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse’s most lauded book: The enchanting story of one man’s journey in search of enlightenment

Born into the privileged life of a Brahmin, young Siddhartha came of age surrounded by the teachings of the Buddha. But despite his earnest pursuit of enlightenment, Siddhartha is left unfulfilled. Determined to find his own path to the nirvana, Siddhartha leaves home to embark on a spiritual voyage, spurning the comforts of his caste and leaving behind all loved ones save for his best friend, Govinda. Homeless, without food, and dedicated to their austere lifestyle, the friends diverge along two separate paths. Govinda grows ever more dedicated to Buddhist teachings while Siddhartha travels a more meandering road—through asceticism, into an embrace of the joys of the flesh, and finally to an understanding of the nature of time, truth, and the ultimate path to self-realization.

First published in Germany in 1922, Siddhartha grew in popularity through the 1960s, when it became a touchstone of the American counterculture movement. The book endures today as a stirring and lyrical exploration of self-discovery.

Great book.

I would recommend this book. It tells a story of a man on his journey of his self. Soaking up knowledge and gaining wisdom on his way. Most would not agree with some of his decisions nor do I but overall the story is a good one.

Absolute garbage

To whomever it may concern,
This book is not the original. :(
It feels like it has been thrown into a google translate garbage disposal and they tried to put the mush back together...
I would recommend buying this book! thanks 🙏🏻👍🏻
