It is a spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man (Siddhartha) during the time of the Gautama Buddha. Siddhartha means siddha (achieved) + artha (what was searched for), which together means "he who has found meaning (of existence)". The Buddha is referred as "Gotama".
Siddhartha’s journey shows that understanding is attained not through intellectual methods, nor through immersing oneself, but completeness of experiences. Must read for those who are seeking enlightenment.
