Hi! I've read these book once,and presents quite a twist of fate, I like it,especially for the ending by which ,although diferent, people can realise themselves and reunite at the same source,no matter the struggle,the mistakes the salvation can be achieved,it seamed to me similar with the Matrix somehow,an unique code,symbol, at the base of every being,object,sound, or other,this hearing-vision is the enlightment itself,realising that the whole is one in the essence...But ,nomatter, the book I tasted for the journey not for the destination,for the human not for the divine, for the simple and not the perfect...Sorry for this comment,maybe I didn't spoiled the will for reading if you haven't read it yet...Anyhow a great book, great author...bye!

I did read it... I liked it a lot. My comment about desire..I posted at the beginning of the book when Siddartha was trying to achieve nirvana through letting go of all human desire and need. I guess neither letting go of desire, nor embracing it led to salvation, but finding peace with himself did. That's what I'm looking for, myself.
