Siddhartha : en indisk diktning

by Hermann Hesse

Blurb

Siddhartha er en allegorisk dannelsesroman av den tysk-sveitsiske forfatteren Hermann Hesse. Det var Hesses niende roman og ble publisert i 1922 av S. Fischer Verlag.
Romanen handler om den unge brahminen Siddhartha som levde på samme tid som Gautama Buddha. Siddhartha var også Buddhas navn før sin opplysning og betyr «den som har oppnådd sine mål», av siddha + artha. I boken blir Buddha kalt Gotama.
Siddhartha oppgir både familien og presteskapet for å forme sin egen livsoppfatning. Gjennom refleksjoner følger vi hans tankegang under det asketiske livet frem til den hedenske livsførselen i byen. Siddharthas overbevisning om at sannheten ved tilværelsen bare kan bli oppnådd gjennom egne livserfaringer, driver han videre.
Romanen inneholder også en viktig innsikt i forholdet mellom den profane verden og den guddommelige, som Siddhartha søker. Den unge brahminen trekker seg bort fra den menneskelige sfære og bosetter seg ved en hellig elv. Han lærer seg de ulike former for yoga og meditasjon, og praktiserer til slutt de mest avanserte disipliner til fullkommenhet.

Was soll man dazu sagen bzw. Schreiben? Ein wunderbares, fast magisches Büchlein über die Suche nach dem Selbst. Wer sich für Buddhismus und fernöstliche Philosophie interessiert, wird es lieben! Aber auch so gehört dieses Meisterwerk in jedes Buchregal..
