Muamat is the temple in the jungle.
There, dancing and happiness is the gift of gods.
Terang Bulan is the full moon of Bali. In this
night I am surrounded by the sounds of the Gamelan,
the rich colouring of garment and the smell of pink
Ritmo Rossa: In the warm light of the evening
sun the blue Mediterranean ocean washes around the red
granite rock of the West coast of Sardinia.
The smooth swing of Ritmo Rossa was created at this
Meerestiefen: Through the breakers of the waves
we sink into the tranquility of the depths of the sea,
Meerestiefen. We glide and float through the fantastic
colours and forms of the coralls, and we are astonished
by the dancing of the fish.
Blessing of Buddha: outside of Kathmandou around
the big Stupa of Bouldnath are the monasteries of the
Tibetan Buddhism. There all love and wisdom came over
me in a blessing. The incomparable power of Tibetan
music inspired me to Blessing of Buddha.
