This edition has a NEW introduction by PAULO COELHO. Siddhartha is perhaps
the most important and compelling moral allegory our troubled century has
produced. Integrating Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with
psychoanalysis and philosophy, this strangely simple tale, written with a
deep and moving empathy for humanity, has touched the lives of millions
since its original publication in 1922. Set in India, Siddhartha is the
story of a young Brahmin's search for ultimate reality after meeting with
the Buddha. His quest takes him from a life of decadence to asceticism,
from the illusory joys of sensual love with a beautiful courtesan, and of
wealth and fame, to the painful struggles with his son and the ultimate
wisdom of renunciation
