Transcript of Siddhartha Timeline
"One must find the source within one's own Self, one must possess it" (p. 5).
"He lost his Self a thousand times and for days on end he dwelt in nonbeing" (p. 12).
"His peaceful countenance was neither happy nor sad. He seemed to be smiling gently inwardly. With a secret smile, not unlike that of a healthy child, he walked along, peacefully (p. 22).
Why the conclusion?
"I can think, I can wait, I can fast" (p. 52).
I got out of the book based on what I have experienced in life and my ability to put myself in his shoes. My conclusion is also based on my interpretation on how Herman Hesse emphasized certain events in his life and how he expressed Siddhartha's pain and great teachings.
By Chassity Gutierrez
Book- Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
Translation 2002 by Gutenburg printing press
The book of Siddhartha by Herman Hesse is to point out the abilities and down falls of man. The book is a reflection of how man can find a great force within ourselves but no matter what we have found our path is never clear. We will spend a lifetime to find the true meaning behind life and ourselves but there is no true meaning. We as humans consume wisdom but we must be careful that the wisdom consumes us or leads us in a unforgotten path. The lack of wisdom may do the same but there will never be a leason learned if that is the case.
"Slowly, like moisture entering the dying tree trunk, slowly filling and rotting it, so did the world and inertia creep into Siddhartha's soul; it slowly filled his soul, made it heavy, made it tired, sent it to sleep" (p. 61).
"The new Siddhartha felt a deep love for this flowing water and decided that he would not leave it again so quickly" (p. 81)
"Nothing was, nothing will be, everything has reality and presence" (p. 87).
"During deep meditation it is possible to dispel time, to see simultaneously all the past, present and future, and then everything is good, everything is perfect, everything is Brahman" (p. 116).
"He saw all these forms and faces in a thousand relationships to each other, all helping each other, loving, hating, destroying each other and become newly born. Each one of them was mortal, a passionate, painful example of all that was transitory. Yet none of them died, they only changed, were always reborn, continually had a new face: only time stood between one face and another." pg. 121
The journey of Siddhartha start here
it s how he starts his journey to find the truth behind the world and himself. The quote shows the curiosity of us as human beings and bring to light the beginning of the novel.
This quote shows a significance on how Siddhartha strives for the truth and expects it but he learns that he will loose what he feels what his meaning and purpose is. He learns that we all do this and it leads him to see the world in a diffident view
Siddhartha soon learns that we must find tranquility in our selves and in order to do that he must detach his emotions and feel through his ora. This sets him on the path to realization of what the world energy is.
He finally masters the ability to let go of his pain and misfortunes . He lets go of his spirit and . attaches his soul to the universe and that allows him to became a whole new self.
He realizes that his greatest abilities are the ones that he can not buy or offer to significant others, but the ones that he has mastered and make him different than others.
He sick of the life he has lived a life of a wealthy unhappy man. He finds him self wanting a way out giving himself to the river and being dorm it to the world.
The river was the only connection he had left to the world as a man of Gautama. It was a reminder of the great qualities that he held and the ones that he earned through his wealth. The river was his obsession because he felt it understood him but that he had to learn to understand it.
He realizes what he looked for and what sent him on his journey wasn't exactly what he had hoped for, but the exact opposite the world we live in has its harsh reality and there is no way of escaping it because it is there.
He realizes that we must see the positive with all the bads that come even if what was bad was the best thing at the point it was happening.(like when he consumed wealth)
Siddhartha has realized that the greatest thing that we with hold is being human. He realizes no matter what great abilities we withhold we are human and
our nature will thrive above our teachings
