Synopsis Siddhartha is a literary masterpiece that has captivated seekers and readers ever since its publication many decades ago. Set in the time of Gautama the Buddha, the story takes you on a journey with a young brahmin - Siddhartha, who decides to leave home in the quest for the ultimate truth. He relinqishes his luxurious house and family with his faithful friend Govinda, to head for the forest and lead an ascetic life. Living the monastic life, he learns much about himself, but even so, is still seeking a truth beyond all that which he has learnt. The narrative pendulum now swings to the the other extreme and Siddhartha’s onward journey takes him from an austere to a sensual life which holds its own set of lessons for Siddhartha’s perceptive mind. Having seen life from different angles, and the truth packaged in various forms, he goes on to discover his path. This book gives the reader an insightful glimse into his awakening because every reader has a Siddhartha in him who is trying to make sense of the world around and discover his own true path.

About the author Hermann Hesse was born in 1877 in the town of Calw, on the edge of Germany’s Black Forest. He grew up in a missionary family whose religious beliefs deeply influenced him. Apart from Siddhartha, his best known works include Steppenwolf and The Glass Bead Game (also known as Magister Ludi) which explore an individual's search for spirituality outside society. In 1946, Hesse was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He lived the rest of his life quietly in Switzerland and died in 1962 at the age of eighty-five.
