Hermann Hesse
Siddhartha
Book Review by Author/Illustrator Ross Anthony

An insightful spiritual journey. Encourages inner reflection and reflection on reflection. Siddhartha seems to have it all as the most perfectly trained and disciplined member of his "religious" community. But instead of stepping into the obvious role of leader, he gives it all up in search of that very illusive understanding which will enable him to rid himself of ego. His journey is a lifetime and as his philosophic and spiritual insights ping pong and progress, the reader too picks up a few lessons from his struggles.

“The river is everywhere at once -- at its source, by the waterfall, by the ferry crossing, in the rapids, in the sea, in the mountains -- everywhere at the same time. And that for it there is only the present, not the shadow called the future.”
