Journey to Enlightenment in Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha

Le Hong Linh

India is the mother of the world's four major religions. It has given birth to Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. The people of India follow different other religions too, namely, Christianity and Islam. The people's belief in their religions and religious ideas are unquestionable. Despite this religious diversification, India is a secular country. It shares the treasure of knowledge and wisdom with the world through its religions. The religions and their ideasare propagated through many literary works by Indians as well as many non-Indian writers. Hermann Hesse is one such novelist and poet who was inspired by the thoughts and ideas of Buddhism. He in his Siddhartha has eloquently expressed certain religious ideals of Buddhism in a novel way. In this novel, he has emphasised that the true enlightenment is attained through a course of the journey. He has given birth to both spiritual and aesthetic works, body versus mind and seeks personal spiritual attainment outside the constraints of society
