Tempel India

“I was born in a small village in the mountains of Austria and started playing music in my early youth shortly after my father had passed away; the music was a form of healing for me from the very beginning. After some years in rock bands, city life and university, I left Austria at the age of 21 and began  a journey and quest. Many years in Asia followed and a great time of music, spiritual growth and tasting the great mystery. Based in the Himalayas, life was full of magical meetings with extraordinary people, sacred places, solitude and the wilderness and I found one of my personal  masters and guides, Sufi master Hazrat Inayat khan and the  healing music way.Many years I only played for the mountains & forests, sunsets and moonrises, in temples and lonely villages for a few friends. On this new path I became a pilgrim of music, playing for the spirit, joy and devotion. Life is wonderful and I feel thankful for every moment of this amazing journey and especially for all the healing moments in the energetic realms of music. I spent many years studying the secret doctrines of music and harmony, Pythagoras, the Vedas, Sufism as well as harmonic science and I am convinced of the significance of music for the evolution of mankind. Music starts where the words end. It is a sacred gift. We can return to mother earth and share in our hearts, a beautiful answer to the great mystery of life. Music is my religion and the deepest communion with the divine.”
