In addition to these newer translations, Hilda Rosner's original translation is still being sold in a number of reprint editions put out by various publishers.

The newest translations include: Modern Library , a translation by Susan Bernofsky , foreword by Tom Robbins , translator's preface Anyway, Siddhartha — remember: Kamala directs him to Kamaswami, a wealthy merchant under whose mentorship Siddhartha learns the secrets of business.

Moreover, he even surpasses him, since the patience he has acquired during his years as a Samana makes him the perfect most rational businessman you can ever imagine.

Now that he is rich, Siddhartha goes back to Kamala and — well, enjoys the immediate joys of sexual pleasure.

Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain how the couple gets a child, named — surprise! Guys, you have to try harder. Siddhartha grows sick with sex and money by the way, he becomes a gambler, as well and decides to return to the river.

There, he reunites with Vasudeva and starts to live a humbler life choosing the river to be his teacher. We would have loved such a teacher in our high school years as well!

Siddhartha

Time passes and Kamala, travelling with her son to see Buddha at his deathbed did we forget to mention: Siddhartha badly wants to find him, but Vasudeva tells him something modern parents will have a hard time understanding: This alleviates Siddhartha suffering and, suddenly, he is overwhelmed by a jubilant mood which stems from the realization that even pain is an illusion.

And, of course, his first student is Govinda, who comes to the river to hear some words of wisdom from the wise ferryman everyone is talking about. Deeply, Govinda bowed; tears he knew nothing of, ran down his old face; like a fire burnt the feeling of the most intimate love, the humblest veneration in his heart.

Deeply, he bowed, touching the ground, before him who was sitting motionlessly, whose smile reminded him of everything he had ever loved in his life, what had ever been valuable and holy to him in his life.

And that not everybody can reach personal fulfillment by following the same general steps? Follow your own path.

But beware of too much wisdom. He reaches a river and meets Vasudeva, a ferryman who helps him cross the river. Since Vasudeva is one of the names of Krishna , we, the readers, might have just crossed a river as well, moving from the land of Buddhistic ascetism into the kingdom of hinduist hedonism. A lot of it, in fact.

Her response? Now, what did you expect, Siddhartha? Sex lessons for free?
