Teaching as a Carpenter, Gardener, and Mentor

In Herman Hesse's novel Siddhartha, one of the first scenes involves the title character telling his father that he is leaving home. Siddhartha's father had constructed an ideal life for his handsome and brilliant teenage son; he was wealthy, well-educated, safe, and healthy. However, Siddhartha literally took a stand in rejecting all of that, standing still throughout the night until his father gave him permission to leave. Near the end of the book, Siddhartha's own son runs away from him, not even asking permission; Siddhartha had tried to show him the way to happiness and enlightenment, but the son rejected it all. After running after his son in order to bring him back, Siddhartha decides to let him go.
