Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam are a series of 75 quatrains about the path of spiritual enlightenment. My source book is Wine of the Mystic : The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. This book has a great introduction to his work and its turbulent history of (mis)interpretation and translation. The commentary takes a Hindu/Yogic perspective, but is nonetheless valuable to people of all faith traditions.
