Summary
"As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha himself, then alive on earth, but he cannot be content as a disciple; he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubts - a torturous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love affair with the beautiful courtesan Kamala, the temptations of wealth and power, the heartache of a struggle with his own son, to final renunciation and peace in self-knowledge." --Cover
