SiddharthaSiddhartha by Hermann Hesse

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Being of indian origin, I was really thrilled to read this book that captures the ancient spiritual India quite accurately. The most poignant moment for me was to read about Siddartha coming face to face to Gautama Buddha and tell the great teacher that wisdom cannot be taught; that it is incommunicable. Isn’t that so true? No amount of reading or meditating can teach us about life.

The only way to learn about life is to live, to immerse in this extraordinary opportunity that is the human experience,
