Accordingly the wish of his parents he married and started a family. He studied for instance medical science and astronomy and possessed a free and almost ‘western’ analytical mind. Due to this he had a great desire to bring eastern end western spirituality together. During a big religious pilgrimage he met Babaji and got inspired to write a book about this subject: “The holy science” (publisher Ankh Hermes).
