About the product «Siddhartha» is a pearl of Hermann Hesse’s prose, which reflects the writer’s travels across India, as well as his interest in Eastern religions. The scene of action is India during the time of Siddhartha Gautama — the founder of one of the deepest and wisest religions of mankind — Buddhism. In this small book, Hesse managed to explain its essence to Europeans, to create an ideal system — a set of interrelated rules of how to live, how to correct your mistakes, how to find your true self. This parable is worth reading and rereading not because of the plot and not in search of new knowledge, but because of that deep understanding of the world, the feeling of unity with others that it gives. The edition also includes the allegorical story «Journey to the Land of the East».
