One Comment to Siddhartha

  1. Hermann Hesse was a German Swiss poet, novelist, and painter In 1946, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature His best known works include Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game also known as Magister Ludi which explore an individual s search for spirituality outside society.In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German speaking world worldwide fame only came later Hesse s first great novel, Peter Camenzind , was received enthusiastically by young Germans desiring a different and natural way of life at the time of great economic and technological progress in the country Throughout Germany, many schools are named after him In 1964, the Calwer Hermann Hesse Preis was founded, which is awarded every two years, alternately to a German language literary journal or to the translator of Hesse s work to a foreign language There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe,Germany.

  2. So there s a damn dirty hippie in India named Siddhartha who is supposed to be seeking spiritual enlightenment, but instead of going to a good Christian church like a normal person, he wanders around the woods for a while with some other damn dirty hippies After he meets Buddha, he finally gets tired of being broke ass and homeless, and he goes into town where he makes a pile of money This is good because everyone knows that engaging in capitalism is the only proper way to go through life As a b [...]

  3. Whatever Blah blah blah Samana Blah blah blah Kamala Blah blah blah Samsara Blah blah blah River Blah blah blah Om.

  4. My apologies if this review reeks of GUSHness However, it gave me that ONE OF A KIND reading experience that doesn t come along often and so I think it is certainly worthy of the praise I shall heep upon it Beautifully written and a deeply personal story, Hesse has created the ultimate expression of the journey of self discovery The book details the story of Siddhartha, the young and brilliant son of a Brahmin in ancient India The Brahmin are the uber revered caste comprised of poets, priests, t [...]

  5. MY BEST BOOK OF 2017 In life we all look for meaning, we all look for something to give us a purpose and, in essence, a reason to actually be alive Nobody wants to get to the end of their journey and realise it was all for nothing, and that their days were utterly wasted So how do we find this meaning One must find the source within one s own Self, one must possess it Everything else was seeking a detour, an error We must find our own peace Siddhartha followed the teachings of others and it gran [...]

  6. If I could turn back time or perhaps pass through some portal which brings me face to face with my 14 year old self, there are so many books I would recommend to little me, grabbing my shoulders to shake my malnourished frame and insisting that I get to reading them as soon as effin possible instead of waiting until I m too old and cynical and hyper critical to appreciate and relate to what they have to say If this ever is was the case, this time warp, today I would probably see a lot novels as [...]

  7. Most religions know of it as Enlightenment when the individual transcends himself and sees himself as one with the ultimate reality It can be theistic the Aham Brahma Asmi I am the Brahman or Tat Tvam Asi Thou Art That of Hinduism or atheistic the Buddhist Nirvana, based on the Anatman non soul but the person who achieves it, according to all sources, is caught up in profound rapture To reach this stage, one has to tread an arduous path Carl Gustav Jung called the process individuation Joseph Ca [...]

  8. I taught this book to juniors, and when I did I became frustrated with a student when I introduced it, because he let his classmates know that he d already read it and it sucked I m happy to report, now that we ve finished it, that his comments didn t seem to hurt the class s opinion of the book too badly In fact, that student himself said it was pretty good and that he d only skimmed it the last time he read it Lousy kids Another student said it was his favorite book that we d read so far And t [...]

  9. It was the book I read it four years back And to tell the truth I did not liked it much at the time I thought this guy has written a book for western audience who are not familiar with the philosophy of karma and dharma , or rather, in general, the basic philosophy of India, who after reading it will realize something esoteric And so it seemed to me a book containing wisdom that didn t touched me And I finished it with the verdict contains wisdom, but lacks depth, boring at times, and do not gra [...]

  11. Set on the Gangetic Plain some 2,600 years ago, Siddhartha is about one man s search for enlightenment Siddhartha, son of a Brahmin, even in the presence of Gautama Buddha himself, is unable to find a way if it depends on the teachings of others There is, Siddhartha comes to believe, no single illuminated path for all men and women to follow We must each of us make our own mistakes We must all suffer, and no warning against it will ever help us For to live some kind of bizarre life of comfort th [...]

  12. By the latter part of the 19th Century, the colonial spread of European powers across the world was in full swing The British ruled India and Australia and had gone to war with China to force opium on the population Africa, South America, and the Philippines had been portioned out for Western rule and control of resources.But tyranny does not travel only in one direction, from conqueror to subject When Medieval European knights returned from the crusades, they brought with them mathematical prin [...]

  13. Has it ever happened to you that you are standing, facing a magnificent, breathtaking view, in solitude, and a strong wind hits you in the face You try to stay still, with eyes closed and then an involuntary smile comes across your face This book was like that.

  14. Lately, even before I read this book, I was noticing some book opinion that I would like this book better at my younger age , especiallyCecily s review about The Alchemistthat I couldn t agree I cannot help myself comparing this book with The Alchemist, although Siddharta is the better one I believe if I read this ten years ago, I could appreciate about the plot But there is a Catch 22 situation ten years ago, I don t know enough to appreciate the Vedic jargons on the book.The plot is obviousl [...]

  15. Hermann Hesse writes as though his words are god s perspective, but I don t believe in god And, for the most part, I think god is boring I believe most people like this book because they think they will look dumb if they don t.

  16. What is the meaning of life I don t know, and you re not going to find the answer in this book, although I ve read some reviews of readers who claim it changed their lives, so there you go.

  17. Desde hac a rato que quer a leer Siddhartha, de Hermann Hesse No soy muy aficionado de la literatura espiritual, e incluso muchas veces la rehuyo, pero de todas formas algo en este libro me llamaba la atenci n Hab a o do suficientes cosas buenas de este autor para entender que darle una oportunidad a Siddhartha val a la pena As que lo empec , llevado m s por un impulso que por algo minuciosamente deliberado y planificado.Le los primeros dos cap tulos en dos semanas Esto puede no hablar muy bien [...]

  18. When I picked up Siddhartha, I was expecting something totally different Buddha s life being not on the list of things I am completely unaware of the list including sports, business, computer etc , I expected to hear stories which my grandmother told me since I was a toddler Since Siddhartha is the former name of Gautama Buddha, I thought this was his biography Hence, I was greatly surprised and confused, especially in parts about Kamala I know, it makes sense that my grandmother wouldn t mentio [...]

  19. When I edited my high school newspaper, we produced a popular feature called Phot O pinion where we asked a question about a sometimes pressing topic, quoted the student or teacher and snapped their pic For one issue, at the suggestion of my journalism teacher Mrs Kelley, I asked teachers to name a book that changed their lives I can t remember all the responses, but without hesitation, one teacher told me, Siddhartha, because it showed me a completely different perspective on life A few months [...]

  20. Siddhartha rejects his life as a Brahman s son and goes out into the world in a quest for enlightenment, to live as an ascetic After meeting Buddha, Siddhartha rejects the ascetic life for a material one, the life of a merchant, learning the ways of love from a courtesan, and in time leaves that life behind as well Will Siddhartha ever find what he is looking for Normally, a Nobel prize winning book wouldn t get a second look from me I m into people getting pistol whipped and big monsters I ke [...]

  22. Uber popular and widely read in high schools colleges all over the US, there is a goldmine of true, deep omdescribable philosophy in Siddhartha a constant string of meditation a neverending search through a thick forest of abstraction The world is Westernized by the wise writer, and his easy prose is easy to follow, although the concepts take a while to sink in I mean, how can a person really be devoid of love How can possessions, even the indispensable ones, be so discardable How can life be so [...]

  23. This is the kind of book that people say they like because they re too afraid to admit they don t understand its spiritual mumbo jumbo First off I thought this book was going to be about the Buddha not some random sinful man who coincidentally shares the same name Siddhartha is a patronizing, stuck up, heartless young brahmin who believes that he s pretty much superior to everyone else around him, despite that fact that his only skills are the ability to think, pray, and fast which let s face it [...]

  24. SPOILER ALERT You will grow tired, Siddhartha I will grow tired You will fall asleep, Siddhartha I will not fall asleep You will die, Siddhartha I will die 14 625 .

  25. There may be a little spoiler The time an old one The place India There s this guy named Siddhartha, who was everyone s love and joy A wise and decent young man who inspired everyone around him, but himself He was not content with his life and everything around it, spiritually speaking He felt it was not enough And why wasn t it enough I don t know, but it is in human nature to wonder about the essence of things, like the existence of God, of any god He was in a better position, though He was ce [...]

  26. How happy we are with the life we are so busy in living And how busy we are in thinking all other worldly doings than life itself.And here Hermann s Sidhartha points a score over us.When we look back into years that have passed, the moments that are gone, the memories fading away swiftly, and new ones forming in their place with equal swift, what all these counts are wanting is the incidence of inner peace It might be there, ensnared, crumpled, and terse but we never partook the uttermost sense [...]
