Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse Book Summary

Hermann Hesse wrote Siddhartha during a period in his life in which he suffered what he described as a “sickness with life.” He claimed to be unable to complete the book because he had not experienced the kind of nirvana that Siddhartha, the main character, wants to achieve—so Hesse surrounded himself with sacred Buddhist and Hindu teachings and lived as a recluse in order to complete this work.

Siddhartha is a short, simple tale of a man’s quest to achieve enlightenment and happiness. Over twelve short chapters the reader follows Siddhartha through his time as a young adult, to his exploration of spirituality as a traveling ascetic, to his delvings in lust, business, and greed, to his time as an old man. At each stage of his life Siddhartha yearns for nirvana, finally achieving it only after realizing that it’s all of life’s experiences that form it, not the teachings of any one man.

Today Siddhartha remains an influential text in new Western spirituality.

Powerful in a quiet way. I know that we were assigned to read this book when I was in high school but remember nothing of it and it wasn’t meant for me at that time. But reading this book, a little at a time every morning, was powerful, wondrous, uplifting, thoughtful, inspiring. Even if you think you have read it before, it is worth reading again

Life Changing. A GEM of a book! Wonderful, one of the best works I’ve ever read in my life. When you read this, let the story seep into your life, surrender to the ebb and flow of the story. Let it change you for the better!

beautiful. an astonishing and captivating story. i’ve recently read this book for the second time, and i enjoyed it even more than the first time. there is so much wisdom within this book, it is powerful, insightful, and truly amazing. a life changing read that i would recommend to anyone.

Siddhartha. Cleared up something’s for me. If you read and absorb it you will understand.

Sublime. A great read for those on a spiritual journey, seeking a higher plane of existence. Highly recommend. Should be required reading in school.

His journey is my journey. It brought me 95 pages closer to the oneness we all crave

Fantastic. Read this book twice. You will miss Hesse's point the first time.

Truly touching and wonderful.. This book and the content there in are like some kind of healing salve for the soul.

A Singular Spirituality. The meandering path to a peaceful life is truly a personal one. What will leave one person content and at peace, will only fan the flames of longing in another. That individuality makes wisdom something that cannot be passed from one person to the next. I think this insights are what Hesse is trying to get at in Siddartha. Moreover, even the individually selected journey to a heightened personal spirituality will always be incomplete. Accepting the inability to know all, see all, feel all things, is still live a life worth living, may in fact be the true nirvana. A freedom from in its own way. Hesse is also asking, no, searching for the delicate balance of nirvana. Personal growth through feeding the soul, improving the mind, and satisfying the body. Each awakening requires a death and rebirth of a part of the self. That process is so singularly spiritual and what makes Siddhartha a compelling read.

Rarified greatness. Mesmerizing in its scope and depth

Fantastic. Both philosophically and literature wise, this book is one of the best short stories of a self realization out there.

Great book, with concise but deep thoughts. A short story with full of wisdom.

Not great. This book is extremely confusing. I would not recommend.

Astonished. In honesty, I’m amazed. Although, I naturally rate every book with five stars with no review, but the ending caught my eye and captivated my mind. It hasn’t happened in a long time despite reading countless words in each day of mine, but for this one is a book to read in a remembrance by the ongoing days. What a nice book.

Oneness. This is a must read for all. Life changing.

I’m crying. I’m far from your accomplishments Sid so I’m happy we are one.

Thoughtful read. A book that begs a reread!! So, read it, then, read it again. A book of “words” that may contain something for someone who is....seeking, searching...nay, finding...
