Product Description

Product Description

classic of twentieth-century literature chronicles the spiritual evolution of a
man living in India at the time of the Buddha—a spiritual journey that has
inspired generations of readers. Here is a fresh translation from Sherab
Chödzin Kohn, a gifted translator and longtime student of Buddhism and
Eastern philosophy. Kohn's flowing, poetic translation conveys the
philosophical and spiritual nuances of Hesse's text, paying special attention
to the qualities of meditation experience. This edition also includes an
introduction exploring Hesse's own spiritual journey as evidenced in his
journals and personal letters.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time classic! 20 Nov 2001
By A Customer
When someone gave me this book, I openend it up somewhere in the first third, just to have a glance at a few pages. Well, once started I never stopped reading till the last page and then I read it all over again.
Throughout the book you get glimpses of deep wisdom in order to find out what our lives are truely about - at the end...
Hesse's "Siddharta" is "The Alchemist" of the beginning of the 20th century; an all time classic! A must for everyone, who likes meaningfull stories.

A fairly dull book, elevated by the odd noteworthy passage and the fact that it's short (meaning not too much time invested in the boring stuff to get to the key paragraphs).

I was advised to read this book and at the very beginning found it hard to grasp but as soon as I did grasp it I loved and enjoyed it do much. It opens all your senses to the world.
