The Journey to The East by Hermann Hesse

Vivid, mystical description of a member of a league, making a pilgrimage east. He loses touch with his earlier spirituality at the loss of one of their servants only to discover that (SPOILER ALERT) that loss was a test (which he failed). Well written. Often slips into LSD-trip-like spiritual meanderings (which are very well done). It's quick and worth the read.
