Product Description

One of the most acclaimed and best-selling spiritual classics of the twentieth century, this book chronicles the spiritual evolution of a man living in India at the time of the Buddha - a tale that has inspired generations of readers.

We are invited along on Siddhartha's journey experiencing his highs, lows, loves, and disappointments. Hesse begins by showing us the life of a privileged brahmin's son. Handsome, well-loved, and growing increasingly dissatisfied with the life expected of him, Siddhartha sets out on his journey, not realising that he is fulfilling the prophesies proclaimed at his birth.

Siddhartha blends in with the world, showing the reader the beauty and intricacies of the mind, nature, and his experiences on the path to enlightenment.

Sherab Chödzin Kohn's flowing, poetic translation conveys the philosophical and spiritual nuances of Hesse's text, paying special attention to the qualities of meditative experience. Also included is an extensive introduction by Paul W. Morris, a Buddhist scholar and former editor of Tricycle magazine, that discusses the impact Siddhartha has had on contemporary culture.
