I can relate to Siddhartha in this respect because when I am going through a difficult time in my life, I like to go through it on my own. There have been times in my life when I wanted to find out the truth about something, and upon finding out the truth, I wondered if I were better off not knowing it.
Siddhartha comes to the realization that he does not desire knowledge, he desires wisdom, and wisdom only comes when you are ready to receive it.
At the beginning of the book, Siddhartha begins to question the Brahmin faith.
He feels, however, he is better off looking within himself for answers to his questions, rather than looking to others for help. He feels that knowledge is something that he needs to do this, but knowledge does not always lead to peace.
Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, is the story of the life journey of the main character, Siddhartha, after which the book is named.
Throughout the novel, Siddhartha questions many aspects of life including wisdom, love, and happiness, which causes the reader to reevaluate life as well.The ending of this novel indeed makes every reader think about the meaning of life.And that would be the final thing which Hesse hope to convey through this novel. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your visiting. Introduction Man Ju Y13A English What message do you think Hermann Hesse wishes to convey by the way he concludes the novel?Govinda now sees the recurring of everything in the world by staring into the perfect one.Here, Siddhartha could be representing the world where everyone lives in it.In this chapter, he meets his best friend Govinda, and once again they talk about their life experiences.Siddhartha thinks that seeking a goal can distract one from finding that goal because his eyes only see the think that he seeks and ignores what he finds or has beside him. But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal." This reminds me that Siddhartha used to learn from the samanas and although he had leant much from them, but it was not what he really wished to learn."Beneath heaped-up black hair he saw a bright, very sweet, very clever face, a bright red mouth like a freshly cut fig, artful eyebrows painted in a high arch, dark eyes, clever and observant, and a clear slender neck above her green and gold gown." She represents all that is beautiful in the world. The only part of his life that Siddhartha feels truly involved in is the time he spends with Kamala. I was in a relationship where I felt like Siddhartha.Throughout the entire relationship, nothing else seemed to matter to me.
