Omar Khayyam’s famous poem, The Rubaiyat, is loved by Westerners as a hymn of praise to sensual delights. In the East, his quatrains enjoy a very different reputation: they are known as a deep allegory of the soul’s romance with God. Even there, however, the knowing is based on who and what Omar Khayyam was: a sage and mystic. As for what the quatrains actually mean, most of them have remained a mystery in the East as much as in the West.

After eight centuries, Paramhansa Yogananda, one of the great mystics of our times, explained the mystery behind Omar’s famous poem. These audio tracks, narrated by Swami Kriyananda, contain the essence of that great revelation.

    The Rubaiyat has a deep appeal to me. Are there other narrated verses available?
    Thank you for this introduction it caught my attention like a magnet catches a nail. Peace.
