Quotes About Siddhartha And Govinda

What is meditation? What is leaving ones body? What is fasting? What is holding ones breath? It is fleeing from the self, it is a short escape of the agony of being a self, it is a short numbing of the senses against the pain and the pointlessness of life. The same escape, the same short numbing is what the driver of an ox-cart finds in the inn, drinking a few bowls of rice-wine or fermented coconut-milk. Then he wont feel his self any more, then he wont feel the pains of life any more, then he finds a short numbing of the senses. When he falls asleep over his bowl of rice-wine, hell find the same what Siddhartha and Govinda find when they escape their bodies through long exercises, staying in the non-self.
— Hermann Hesse —
