9789380005607: Siddhartha

‘Siddhartha’ is perhaps the most important and compelling moral allegory our troubled century has produced. Integrating Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with psychoanalysis and philosophy, this strangely simple tale, written with a deep and moving empathy for humanity, has touched the lives of millions since its original publication in 1922. Set in India, Siddhartha is the story of a young Brahmin's search for ultimate reality after meeting with the Buddha. His quest takes him from a life of decadence to asceticism, from the illusory joys of sensual love with a beautiful courtesan, and of wealth and fame, to the painful struggles with his son and the ultimate wisdom of renunciation.

Book Description Maple Press Pvt. Ltd., 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Based in ancient India, the book introduces us to the protagonist, the son of a Brahmin named Siddhartha. Albeit having led a prosperous and blessed life, Siddhartha remains dissatisfied with life and decides to leave his home one day in search for true nirvana, or spiritual enlightenment. He begins this journey alongside his closest friend, Govinda, and becomes an austere member of the Samanas. Siddhartha learns to meditate, renounce food and other worldly possessions and eventually meets with Gautam Buddha. Govinda is so taken in by Buddha`s supreme wisdom that he joins his order, but Siddhartha remains unconvinced. He sets off alone and crosses the river with the help of a benevolent ferryman, who prophesies that Siddhartha would repay him in some way, some day. Siddhartha then meets Kamala, a concubine. She helps him find a job and he soons works his way up and leads a luxurious life. Devoid of meditation and free of his spiritual quests, Siddhartha falls prey to materialistic possessions and lowly habits, and one day realizes that the life he has built is a sham. He leaves without informing anyone, and meets the same ferryman besides a river. The ferryman is named Vasudeva, and he offers to teach the distraught and desolate Siddhartha how to learn from observing the river. After many years, Siddhartha discovers he has an eleven year old son with Kamala, and inspite of repeated attempts to create a bond with him, the young boy escapes and returns to the city. Printed Pages: 152. Bookseller Inventory # 109041
