Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the East, Omar Khayyam's famous poem, The Rubaiyat, is known not as a hymn of praise to sensual delights, but as a deep allegory of the soul's romance with God. Now after eight centuries, Paramhansa Yogananda, one of the great mystics of our time, explains the mystery behind Omar's famous poem. This literary masterpiece was edited by J. Donald Walters, a close, direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda since 1948, and author of more than 60 books. In 1950, Yogananda personally gave Walters the task of editing his writings on The Rubaiyat. Includes 75 poetic quatrains translated into English by Edward FitzGerald, as well as beautiful black and white illustrative art.

...In the conscious state, the mind is made aware of the world through the senses. In the subconscious state, the mind withdraws from sensory awareness as the life-force retires to partial rest in the hidden "grottoes, ' or chakras, of the spine. In the superconscious state, the consciousness and life-force together pass upward through the spinal "gates" to the brain, and thence outward into the omnipresence of Spirit.

...Omar Khayyam makes it clear that the spiritual states he experienced were not unique; that they are available to all who will endeavor scientifically, and with deep sincerity, to pass through the seven stages of inner awakening until they succeed at last in uniting their souls with God. Everyone, ultimately, must unearth the mystery of life and death, for only within lies our abiding reality.

...This thirty-first stanza of The Rubaiyat shows clearly Omar's advancement on the path of yoga: not a primrose path of wine and drunkenness, but the secret, arduous, yet infinitely rewarding path of divine"intoxication".
