This excerpt is being narrated by the narrator of the story after Siddhartha’s son had left him and felt as if he had a wound. After his son had left him, Siddhartha’s torment and bitterness are incredible. One day, Siddhartha looks at the river and as the water chuckles at him for letting the injury blaze so deeply. Siddhartha believes that this was a part of his fate and was inevitable. Siddhartha has a sort of flashback when looking into the river and seeing that history had repeated itself (cross reference to chapter 1) when Siddhartha had left his father, the Brahmin to follow a different path. As night falls, Siddhartha had told Vasudeva about his observation and Vasudeva invites Siddhartha to listen more closely to the river. Siddhartha then experiences something incredible; he hears voices of joy and sorrow, good and evil, laughter and mourning. He doesn 't let himself get caught up with all these voices and hears one single word, the word “Om”. Vasudeva sees a change in Siddhartha and notices that Siddhartha no longer doubts his place in the world. Vasudeva also notices that Siddhartha was on the same level as him when they first met, causing Vasudeva to leave into the forest.This excerpt is being narrated by the narrator of the story after Siddhartha’s son had left him and felt as if he had a wound.
