A picture for the book Siddhartha

Siddhartha


Siddhartha: An Indian Tale was first published in German in 1922. It is a journey of self-discovery during the time of the Gautama Buddha. It is often introduced to high school students, which seems fitting as they embark on their own self-discovery into adulthood. Illustration by Abanindranath Tagore, Departure of Siddhartha, 1914.
