Siddhartha is the story of a brahmin son who devotes his life to the search for the true self. As an ascetic in the mountains he meditates and fasts, but does not find the truth. Roaming as a mendicant monk he hears about the Buddha, but the great Master cannot give him the truth either. Then he plunges into worldly life, becomes a lover of the courtesan Kamala, acquires wealth and property, until he feels he will perish in it; and again he becomes a beggar.
Guided by the holy Om, Siddhartha finally comes to the great river, symbol of harmony and impermanence. In the old ferryman's cabin he learns to love and understand the world of things.
"I can love a stone, and also a tree or a piece of bark. They are tangible things, and what is tangible can be loved. But I cannot love words. That is why I don't see anything in a teaching."
Thus Siddhartha of ascetic and mendicant, epicurean and rich man has returned to the simplicity of a child: he has found harmony, the eternal Om.
