In Herman Hesse’s novel, Siddhartha, the main character's path to enlightenment goes through a series of obstacles and is in constant adaptation to Siddhartha's current situation. After coming to the realization about how he is not content with his spiritual and physical life, Siddhartha leaves his family behind and seeks the path to eternal enlightenment. To Siddhartha's realization, he experiences divergent situations that could potentially lead him to enlightenment. There were various factors in which disparate aspects led to the different building of Siddhartha’s character and potential path to enlightenment. The Samanas, were widely responsible for many of the ideas and predetermined mindset that Siddhartha continued.
Each individual embarks on his or her own hero’s journey in life, some finding peace and enlightenment while others suffer greatly.

Siddhartha walked miles away from the city and knew that there is no going back from this point.

He was completely depressed and fed up with his wealthy life and thought that there is nothing else in the world that can give him happiness. He reached at the bank of river where he met a ferryman during his childhood. He leaned against a coconut tree along the bank.
From the common individuals, Siddhartha takes in a ton including how to live joyfully and how to utilize the present to create a craved outcome later on.

This portrays Siddhartha as somebody who does not really think about common things/things but rather when he sets his psyche on something, he verifies he gets it.

From a grandpa’s last steps to a baby’s first steps, circularity can be seen in the all phases of life. The Grandpa’s last steps were taken through wisdom, while the baby’s steps were taken with the ignorance and innocence of a child. While circularity may be considered cut and dry, one’s experience or inexperience is essential to their roles in the circle of circularity. Siddhartha would have never truly achieved enlightenment without his experience with circularity throughout his search for Nirvana.

Siddhartha Paragraph By reading Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, I learned about the importance of tone. The tone of Siddhartha, overall, is very thoughtful, serious, and deliberate. This tone, sets the “feel” or mood of the book. Since the book is about enlightenment and knowledge, having a deliberate and formal tone allows you to take the book more seriously rather than if it was in a colloquial tone, the book wouldn't have much weight.
In 1933, by which point women held 100,000 jobs in teaching and 3,000 as doctors and in total made up 36% of the workforce, were bribed with 600K mark loans to quit and or not take up jobs in order to employ the men who lost their jobs via the Depression. This caused 15% of teachers and doctors to be fired. So the Depressions significance tolled in social aspect for women, as they had to abide by Hitlers ideology of women birthing the Aryan race.

In Siddhartha, written by Herman Hesse, Siddhartha endures excruciating circumstances and learns how to develop mental strength through his hardships. Learning how to say ‘no’ is a crucial component of developing this strength, because it establishes confidence and enables a person to stand up for themselves. When Kamla offered to have sex with Siddhartha, he was “tempted to say yes and relinquish all of his penance” because he was physically attracted to her (Hesse 54).
