Enlightenment, purpose of life and existence, love, hatred, jealousy, karma; all these are the emotions that have tormented every soul living on the face of the earth. Each one seeks to find answers to the questions they have to ask from life. Many in the past and many in the future have tried to explain and soothe mankind. Siddhartha by Herman Hesse a beautiful and simple story of the man who is always left disillusioned by every endeavour his undertakes in order to find the true meaning of enlightenment. This is about his diligent and honest struggle as he moves through life but always searches for the missing piece of the puzzle that will get him the promise of eternal bliss. A fascinating read as the author slowly removes every doubt and also claims that this is to be felt and words cannot even begin to do justice to something which can only be experienced.
