Paramahansa Yogananda has opened up the heart of OMARR KHAYYAM in this uniquely presented commentary of Fitzgerald's 1st English translation.
With the same remarkable insight displayed throughout His other writings, Yogananda has again given inspiration with clarity and wisdom. His informative introduction re Omarr's life is an especially interesting feature of this work, not to mention His whole approach to commentary. It becomes clear on the first few pages that this work gives more than intellectual elucidation. These are the words and vibes of the living experiences from the authors great spiritual adventure carried to a successful completion.
It leaves the reader filled with awe and wonder - what else did this man write?
