Analysis And Description Of Siddhartha

735 words - 3 pages

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else ... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it. (Hesse Pg)” Siddhartha is introduced as a handsome Brahmin with browned slender shoulders, a slim figure and king-like eyes. As a young man, Siddhartha was anxious by the lack of understanding and he needed someone to provide him with knowledge. In an attempt to gain knowledge and understanding, he journeyed out to different areas to pursuit new knowledge from outside sources with his friend Govinda. He met with the Samanas, had interactions with Gotama, had detailed lessons with his lover Kamala, and achieved a high level of knowledge and understanding from vasudeva the ferryman and his river. The archetypes of this essay include The chosen one, The land is sick, The call to adventure, and The wise old sage.
Siddhartha is the chosen one because he’s the Brahmin’s son, and being a Brahmin means everyone knows you, and your family is popular. The land is sick refers to Siddhartha wanting to go out and learn more, because he doesn’t think he can learn more from the Brahmins. The call to adventure refers to when he first realized that he needs to leave and go to a different place to get more understanding on how to become one with self. The wise old sage is associated with the representation of the sacred principle and a representation of wisdom, knowledge, reflection and insight. As he advanced on his journey, one of the many important symbols that Siddhartha experienced was the river in which he passed through to start a renewed life.
When Siddhartha first saw the river, he saw something exceptional in it and knew right away that the river had a lot to tell him. After waking up from his long sleep, he had never before, “found the appearance of flowing water so beautiful. It seemed to him as if the river has something special to tell him, something he did not know (Hesse pg100).” From the voice and the impression of the river, Siddhartha knew that the...
