Siddhartha had just the only one goal in his life. It means that he wanted to become empty in lots of aspects of this word. So his goal is to become empty of desire, sorrow, pleasure and thirst. His goal is to let the Self die. His goal also meant that he wanted to experience the peace of the emptied heart and experience the purity of thoughts. When all the desires and passions were silent, when all the Self was dead and conquered, then the last must awaken. It is said about the innermost of Being that is no longer than Self. In addition, the great secret of Siddhartha, taking into account his actions and activities, was constantly in search for the pieces of knowledge, regardless of the certain kind or what Siddhartha must do for obtaining this.
Also, there is a book written by Herman Hesse, which is called “Siddhartha” as well. So in this book, it is shown to the readers how Siddhartha left his home and joined the Samanas. Also, there are described all his actions which led to his residence alongside the river.
The author mentioned these scenes when Siddhartha left his home and family where everyone loved him so much. With these episodes, Herman demonstrated that Siddhartha not only knew what he wanted in the life, but also he would do something to get it. For example, Siddhartha didn’t leave the chambers of his father until he had gotten his way. He didn’t do it until his father had submitted to the wishes of Siddhartha and agreed to allow him to leave the home for joining the Samanas.
The large part of the character of Siddhartha consists of the stubbornness and the patience with situations and people. It enables him to wait for anything or anyone what would teach him how to be and helps him during his being with Samanas. But this period of time was so beneficial for Siddhartha. He learned a great deal from them, and he even learned lots of ways of losing the Self. He got a new knowledge, but even though Siddhartha realized that it was the only temporary palliative against the folly and the pain of life. For achieving his main goal, Siddhartha made lots of decisions. One of them was to leave the Samanas and go in search of the Buddha for learning something that he didn’t know yet. During his life, Siddhartha tries to learn everything which he had to deal with. He had everything that is possible for achieving the goal in one place, later he moved to another one for searching more wisdom and the secret for obtaining inner peace. Siddhartha also knew how to find the Self.
