Originally published in 1922, Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha tells the story of a young Indian man’s spiritual journey. After meeting the Buddha, young Siddhartha searches for the ultimate reality and meaning of life. His journey takes him from the arms of a beautiful courtesan to monastic simplicity, from being a son to having his own son, and finally to the true beginning of his life beside a river where he ultimately finds wisdom.

''Siddhartha'' by Herman Hesse is incredibly beautiful - like Lao Tzu says "The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamble is the eternally real"; Herman Hesse has come very close to name the unnameable.
