Siddhartha Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. If you were the river, would you be enlightenment or would you know enlightenment? In other words, what’s up with the river? What is it’s relation to enlightenment?
  2. What does enlightenment look like in Siddhartha? Is it a feeling? An attitude?
  3. What purpose does self-denial serve in Siddhartha? What about self-indulgence?
