Seeking spiritual enlightenment, the young Brahmin Siddhartha renounces all earthly possessions to become a wandering Samana. When neither the ascetic life nor the teachings of Gautama, the Buddha, bring him fulfillment, Siddhartha is tempted into worldly ways through his love for the beautiful Kamala. Soon disgusted with his wanton life, Siddhartha embraces humility and embarks on a personal quest to find the hidden Buddha within himself and all the world.
The story of Siddhartha and his odyssey of spiritual self-discovery has inspired readers for nearly a century. This colorfully illustrated edition captures the wisdom and serene beauty of Hermann Hesse’s timeless tale.
