Siddhartha Lesson

Satisfactory Essays
At the beginning of the story Siddhartha is learning the way of the Brahmin. Then he realizes that the Brahmins have never actually lived the life they teach. After that Siddhartha decides to start living the way the Brahmins have only talked about by becoming a Samana [wandering ascetics(a person who practices severe self-discipline and abstention) from ancient India]. By taking up this new teaching he gives all his possessions away to the poor until he is only wearing a loin cloth. The first thing he learned was life is pain and all were doomed to decay, so he rid himself of thirst, desire, dreams, pleasure, and sorrow.
