The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam Explained is available at last, edited by one of Yogananda's close disciples, J. Donald Walters. This new & expanded version is now available in paperback.

From the Publisher:

This audio book lets the user enjoy some of the most evocative and spiritually insightful verses ever written. Yogananda's allegorical explanations of Omar Khayyam's famous poem will awaken and inspire all listeners to the deep spiritual truths behind this literary classic. Long regarded as a famous love poem that celebrates the senses, "The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam Explained " spells out the poems allegory for the spiritual path-well known in the east, now made clear for the Western audience. Omar Khayyam was a deep mystic, not a hedonist, and his poem is a mystical allegory of the soul's romance with God. Listen to the melodic voice of J. Donald Walters as he sings and chants each verse of "The Rubaiyat", reads the poetic paraphrase of each passage, then follows with a clarifying, expanded meaning.

From the Author:

In Persia, Omar Khayyam has always been recognized as a highly advanced mystic and spiritual teacher. His rubaiyat have been revered as an inspired Sufi scripture. "The first great Sufi writer was Omar Khayyam," writes Professor Charles F. Horne in the Introduction to the Rubaiyat, which appears in Vol. VIII of "The Sacred Books and Early Literature of the East" series. (Parke, Austin and Lipscomb, London, 1917.) "Unfortunately," he continues, "Omar, by a very large number of Western readers, has come to be regarded as a rather erotic pagan poet, a drunkard interested only in wine and earthly pleasure. This is typical of the confusion that exists on the entire subject of Sufism. The West has insisted on judging Omar from its own viewpoint. But if we are to understand the East at all, we must try to see how its own people look upon its writings. It comes as a surprise to many Westerners when they are told that in Persia itself there is no dispute whatever about Omar's verses and the spiritual depth of their meaning. He is accepted quite simply as a great religious poet.
