The story of Siddhartha’s journey to Enlightenment symbolizes the desire to transcend the cycles and trappings and temptations of the world. Birth and death, attraction and repulsion, success and failure seem to repeat over and over and over until they are seen as illusions. The awakening occurs when the mind sees past the illusion of the body/world “self” and recognizes One Self as Spirit. The search ends in finding and experiencing One Self. Oneness transcends duality.
