Siddhartha’s next teacher was Kamala. She taught him the art of love. This was the first time Siddhartha had ever fallen in love. Kamala also introduced Siddhartha to Kamaswami, who was another one of Siddhartha’s teachers. Kamala had transformed into a whole new person. He wore rich clothes, shoes, and his hair was like a rich man’s. Kamala had also taught Siddhartha

what not do to. If he had never met Kamala, he wouldn’t have known what it is like to be an ordinary person and what are some things he should stay away from that would affect him from not reaching his goal. After meeting the Buddha, Siddhartha went into the village, and wasted about twenty years of his life. Imagine what his father would’ve thought! The village also contained another teacher, Kamaswami. Kamaswami thought he was teaching Siddhartha of just business, but indirectly, he was also teaching Siddhartha of greed and money. If Siddhartha ever made a mistake that made Kamaswami lose money, Kamaswami would scold him. This showed what happens to people when all they think about is money. At first, Siddhartha took it lightly and didn’t really care for money because he still had that Samana personality from his childhood, but then later on, money was all he could think of. Then after twenty years, he finally realized it from a dream that he had. Kamala and Kamaswami together had taught Siddhartha the same lesson. He had realized what a big mistake he had made and wasted all precious twenty years. “The world had caught him; pleasure, covetousness, idleness, and finally also that vice that he had always despised and scorned as the most foolish— acquisitiveness. Property, possessions and riches had also trapped him. They were no longer a game and a toy; they had become a chain and a burden” (Hesse 78-79). This is when he finally decided to leave.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
