Siddhartha

It's been a few years since I read it, (2009), but if you want to talk about it, I am here.
It's a book that is hard to forget.
It impacted me in more ways than I realized until now.
Has it had any influence on you?
I know of two people here on this forum that have shared experiences that remind me of that book:
Going with the flow of the water of life, and faces changing, depicting all the people, or even dream characters, you ever knew.....
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!

I think I read it, if it was in circulation about 6-7 years ago. If it describes Buddha's life in a biographical manner, yep.
I used to read a lot, so it all gets jumbled in my mind.

That's the one.
Although technically the main character is not Buddha, it's very similar.

A great short easy-to-read and inspiring novel! The main character is not the Buddha, even though his name is Siddharta. I have a lot of trouble reading novels these days because I find it hard to draw something that has to do with reality, but this kind of novel is insightful and inspiring!
