In many cultures, such as the Hinduism, there is a huge emphasis on tradition. We can see this emphasis in Siddhartha. Raised in a strictly Brahmin family, Siddhartha was expected to follow his family’s footsteps and beliefs because that is what most Brahmins believed was the path to spirituality. Tensions arise between Siddhartha and his family when Siddhartha decides to pursue his own path to enlightenment instead of following his family’s path. When Siddhartha tells his father that he will go to the Samanas the next day with his permission, his father, “falls silent, and remains silent for so long that the stars in the small window wandered and changed their relative positions” (Hesse, 9).
Boor shows this when he writes, “So you figured it would be better if I just hated myself” (265). The only reason his parents told him the truth is Paul confronted them. While they admitted that he had a right to know, they justified their reason for not telling him earlier. Paul may have understood that his parents’ love led to their over protection but he probably distrusted his parents and their ability to tell him the whole truth. Paul’s parents’ choices changed the direction of his life.

When he saw new thing he would try to see how they would work. It got so bad they he even tried to convince house of scholars he discovered something they didn't know about, that had made him get exiled.

Siddhartha Essay One of the precepts of the Hindu religion is Karma, or fate. Hindus believe that people must follow their Karma through many lives or reincarnations until they can be united with the universal soul. Siddhartha follows his own Karma on his quest for total peace in many incidents. Siddhartha’s life had started out as a Brahmin’s son.

Holden is chasing a dream that he cannot accomplish. He sets his goals to high and realised he couldn’t stop the loss of innocence. Holden want to be isolated from other people and wishes to get away, “Just so people didn’t know me and I didn’t know anybody. I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one those deaf-mutes.

Even though you are technically free, you can never be free unless you are accepted by the community you move to. This is shown in the short story The Strangers That Came to Town by Ambrose Flack.
CHAPTER ONE In chapter one, Siddhartha learned that the love of his family would not always be enough to satisfy him. In order for him to lead a fulfilling life, he must venture out on his own and discover what really makes him happy, and what his life’s purpose is.
