After abandoning a life of fasting and meditation for the material world, the title character in Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha takes a job assisting a successful merchant, Kamaswami. Although Siddhartha has a knack for business and customer service, Kamaswami still questions his true dedication to increasing the merchant's profits.

He will thus become more enthusiastic."
