In the shade of the house, in the sunshine on the river bank by the boats, in the shade of the sallow wood and the fig tree, Siddhartha, the handsome Brahmin's son, grew up with his friend Govinda. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book blends Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity into a poignant, comforting embrace for the soul. It is not a novel for the literal reader or the action-seeker. Also, the reader must not be fooled by its simplistic narrative style. It is rich in symbolic import and philosophical vision. I am particularly fond of the novel's philosophy of time--that it does not exist; and if time does not exist, death is an illusion as well. And while the book's major thought is that no teacher, no doctrine, no religion can afford you wisdom, it pays reverent homage to the valuable mentors in life that help us find our way. No matter how many times I read this novel, I always leave it with a sense of peace and humility.

Format: Taschenbuch
Siddhartha is that most unusual of all stories -- one that follows a character throughout most of his life . . . and describes that life in terms of a spiritual journey. For those who are ready to think about what their spiritual journey can be, Siddhartha will be a revelation. For those who are not yet looking for "enlightenment," the book will seem pecular, odd, and out-of-joint. That's because Hesse was presenting a mystery story, also, for each reader to solve for herself or himself. The mystery is simply to unravel the meaning of life.

As the son of a Brahmin, Siddhartha would naturally have enjoyed access to all of the finest lessons and things of life. Knowing of his natural superiority in many ways, he becomes disenchanted with teachers and his companions. In a burst of independence, he insists on being allowed to leave home to become a wandering Shramana (or Samana, depending on which translation you read). After three years or so, he tires of this as well. Near the end of that part of his life, Siddharta meets Gotama, the Buddha, and admires him greatly. But Siddharta continues to feel that teachers cannot convey the wisdom of what they know. Words are too fragile a vessel for that purpose. He sees a beautiful courtesan and asks her to teach him about love. Thus, Siddhartha begins his third quest for meaning by embracing the ordinary life that most people experience. Eventually, disgusted by this (and he does behave disgustingly), he tires of life. Then, he suddenly reconnects with the Universe, and decides to become a ferryman and learn from the river. In this fourth stage of his life, he comes to develop the wisdom to match the knowledge that direct experiences of the "good" and the "sensual" life have provided to him.

I read this book when I was 19. I am now 51. Having just discovered Amazon Books, I was "surfing" and searching out titles that came to memory. I also read the lyrical version in German in those now distant days, and spent much time looking for "Suleika", or "Zuleika". It brought me great peace of mind at that time, as I had to interrupt my college days in order to enter the Army and go to Vietnam. The book reads like the flowing river, and is in some ways an eternal story of search for meaning in life and realization. Like Sidhartha our search for meaning often ends at the beginning. Ultimately, we return to the basic and simple truths that were there when we were born. Growing up is a kind of struggle. Sidhartha is a story of idealism and virtue that survives ignorance, futility and evil. If in the end, we retain that idealism, our lives can be heroic and our conscience pure. Sometimes, I remember and recall the words: "From Sidhartha to Sidhartha is my coming and my going." It is a book of haunting beauty and depth of meaning. W. H. L./Bellevue

Format: Taschenbuch
I rarely give tens to anything. However, I feel very strongly that this book is a must-read for anyone who feels lost. I read this book last year, as a high school senior, at the suggestion of my English teacher. After wading through a beginning that I thought was somewhat discouraging, I found myself being spoken to on a level that I have never found before. At a time in my life when I felt lost in a whirlwind of forced maturity, I found myself calmed and comforted by a book I thought was just an assignment. Alongside Siddhartha, I found myself learning from my hardships and seeking out my own path. That was a much-needed dose of courage when I had none. Now I find myself in college. My first semester was not what I had long hoped for, and I again feel lost. I find solace in Siddhartha, relearning the lessons that he taught me. Hermann Hesse wrote a masterful book about finding one's path, and by doing so, he showed me the way. In this cynical world, inspiration like that is hard to come by....

Siddhartha is a beautiful story from start to finish! For the three hours'time the story runs on cassette tape, the listener is treated to a magical journey to the river of life as he or she accompanies Siddhartha, son of a wealthy Brahmin, and his lifelong friend, Govinda, on Siddhartha's search for enlightment. What is more is that there is just as much beauty in finding that one does not need to live a life of material wealth to find true happiness. I also found a certain beauty learning about the Buddhist religion, including nirvana, through Derek Jacobi's mellifluous reading, and that death is not an end to be feared, but rather a beginning to another life--a life in which we are free from pain, hunger, and thirst, because we know that these needs will be met. I would favorably suggest this book to anyone who is a fan of Derek Jacobi's work and wants a relaxing read for the summer months, too.
