Already as a 10 year old, Lars Muhl had experienced glimpses of another reality. The shock, following the sudden death of his younger sister, caused painful kundalini-like experiences, giving access to the ethereal worlds and a hypersensitive insight into other people's pain. This lasted for three years.

 

A turning point came when Lars was 15 and received a book anonymously in the post. Hazrat Inayat Khan's "Gayan, Nirtan, Vadan" became the start of a lifelong esoteric study.

Like Paulo Coelho, Lars was for many years a successful singer/songwriter who, concurrently with his music, studied the world's religions and esoteric knowledge. Then in 1996, he was struck down by an unexplained illness, which neither doctors nor alternative therapists could diagnose. For three years he lay in bed without being able to move or think straight.

Through a close friend's intervention, Lars was put in touch with a seer who, via the telephone, brought him back to life. That was the start of a completely new existence and the beginning of that quest he has so grippingly described in his trilogy book "The O Manuscript".

Biography

Born in Aarhus, Denmark, 14. November 1950. Started writing a diary based on his strange visions at the age of 12.

Joined the more professional band Daisy in 1968. The other members were: Poul Erik Veigaard, Frank Lorentzen, Flemming Walsøe and Eigil Madsen. The year after, managed by Haim Saban, Daisy toured Israel for 3 month. Because of drugs, they had to stay in the notorius Kabir Prison in Jaffa, but were released 8 days later.
