Synopsis Siddhartha is a novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of a boy known as Siddhartha from the Indian subcontinent during the time of Lord Buddha. In a very simple prose, Hesse has conveyed a very profound message for all seekers. A brahmin boy follows his heart and goes through various lives to finally understand what it means to be enlightened. He experiences life as a pious brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover and an ordinary ferryman, to a father. Neither a practitioner nor a devotee, neither meditating nor reciting, Siddhartha comes to blend in with the world, resonating with the rhythms of nature, bending the reader's ear down to hear answers from the river.

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.
