One day, as I was deeply concentrated on the pages of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat***, I suddenly beheld the walls of its outer meanings crumble away. Lo! vast inner meanings opened like a golden treasure house before my gaze.*** Paramhansa Yogananda
Moments of Truth, Volume One: Excerpts from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam Explained is the first in a series of small books of excerpts from the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, as set forth in his own books and in those of his close disciple, Swami Kriyananda.
The gems of wisdom in this little volume are taken fromYogananda's commentaries on The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, considered by Westerners a celebration of earthly pleasures, but widely recognized in the East as a work of profound spirituality. Yogananda's commentaries are a true scripture in their own right. These selections have scripture's power to change your consciousness, and your life.
From the book: "Behold this one flaming truth: All life is fleeting. Cling to that understanding, and seek, then, within yourself that which alone endures."
