I just finished reading Siddhartha for the first time. Wow… I won’t be on here for a bit, time to talk a little less and learn a little more.
How is the rest of his work?
:) Siddhartha is so amazing. I should re-read it.
I read SIddhartha a few months back for a report in English class. Amazing book. As far as whether you should read it or Conversations with God, that’s a pretty tough one. I just finished Conversations a couple weeks ago, definetely awesome as well. Anyone who liked either book should check out “Transcending the Levels of Conciousness” by Dr. David R. Hawkins. I’m reading it right now and it’s pretty damn great.
@ Zachary…true the river is everywhere :D
did anybody discover the secret? :D

“BOOKS! Check ’em out. BOOKS! Check ’em out!!” (<--of the library)
*bump*. i’ve just fin reading the book last night. Definitely got me thinking more on the big picture. I can relate well enough with Siddhartha when he was setting himself aside from people (or seeming superior) just because he’s more learned than them. *thumbs up for the wake up call*
As if by purpose, it’s the only book i bought at the store for the moment since i know some books would leave you unfulfilled (and robbed of some good thoughts/ideas) in the end.(:
