Publisher's Summary

In this inspiring blend of voice and instrumentation, Swami Kriyananda reads selected quatrains from the sacred poem The Rubaiyat, written nearly a thousand years ago by Omar Khayyam. The mystical music of I, Omar weaves melodically through the background, and transports us to an ancient place and time. Here the heart and mind open to perceive The Rubaiyat's veiled, yet deeply profound spiritual truths. Swami Kriyananda has edited and published The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda, his guru, and has worked extensively with this ancient poem and Yogananda's interpretations. His stirring reading of these selected stanzas with explanations offers spiritual illumination to those who recognize and experience the deeper meaning of these divinely inspired teachings.

Don't get it unless you are studying for an exam

Only listened to about half an hour, but couldn't stand it anymore! Reason lies in the format - he reads two lines of Omar, then a paraphrase, then an expanded meaning. This totally ruins the sublime poetry. His voice is perfectly suited to the beauty of the words, and if only he had read the poem in its entirety first, then did the paraphrase and then the expanded meanings, it would have been great. As it is, I could only reccommend this to someone studying this poem in order to pass an exam. I had never read the poem, and it may be ok if you have read it and want to go into it in depth. This is no substitute for the written word
