Best Answer

After his son leaves, Siddhartha meditates by the river and realizes that life is inevitable. He and Vasudeva meditate by the river, listening to the sound of the "Om" and Siddhartha no longer doubts his life or second guesses himself. He is at a state of Peace, and his enlightenment shows. Therefore, Vasudeva leaves Siddartha as the new ferryman. Word is out that a wise man lives on the river, and Govinda seeks out for his advice. Siddhartha tells him that enlightenment cannot be taught, it has to be acheived through your Self. Knowledge can passed along, but you must earn your own wisdom. He tells him that the word is complete, and you have to learn to accept it as it is. Govinda then kisses Siddhartha on the forehead, and through that, he too reaches enlightenment

Why was siddhartha such a silly twit?

I think you should be more clear on what you are asking because I don't know who Siddhartha is. If you are referring to the Siddhartha from the book Siddhartha than I could probably help you except for the fact that a "twit" is a pregnant goldfish in case you didn't know and I don't think Siddhartha was a silly little pregnant goldfish.(new person)i agree, you really do need to be more specific. also, if you are referring to siddhartha the buddha then you really are the twit because siddhartha was an incredible man and a great role model. seriously dude, do u even know who siddhartha is?(New person)It is Siddhartha the person who founded Buddhism
