Wonderful Moment when 'emaho - the Story of Arya Tara' was released

Dear friends,

It was literally a wonderful 'emaho' moment when we released and celebrated our double album 'emaho - the Story of Arya Tara' with all our musicians, families, friends, sponsors and helpers. Now our music has started its journey into the world and wherever it is heard it will convey a special Tara energy. We thank you all for untiring support for our music, our work and our common vision to spread the message of hope, confidence and to take us all to our  own inner strength and beauty.

Deeply connected with all of you,


Dechen and Helge

A very special cover for my new Album 'emaho - the Story of Arya Tara'

You are the first to see the cover of the album. Do you like it? and…. can you recognize me?


The wonderful art work comes from the graphic designer and artist, Julien Gründisch from Baden. This time, too, the music is simply enchanting, beautifully composed by my producer Helge van Dyk. I sing the powerful Tibetan protective mantras of Arya Tara, the goddess who promised to always return in a female form in order to free beings from their fears and to protect them from the eight internal and external dangers.


I think we all need this more than ever. Helge and I wanted to create music that would transform the  sadness, fears, worries and frustration caused by the the global pandemic into healing music that will help us restore our inner strength and making peace with oneself and others.

The album will be available from October 29, 2021 on this homepage and in stores.

Sincerely Yours,


The recording of the new album has been successfully completed

Dear friends,
we made it!!!
The new album ‚EMAHO, an amazing ONE‘ is accomplished.
So grateful to my producer Helge van Dyk and Werner Dönni our sound engineer to make sure that all the seven precious tracks of this album have the highest quality sound possible to transmit the ancient message of wisdom, love and compassion of the Godess Tara.
I could not be happier????
Yours Dechen????????????

The sound of Tibetan Mantras at Ven. Tulku Lama Lobsang la's Teachings

Dear friends, It was a great honor for us to play our music for Tulku Lobsang la and all his students that attended his teachings yesterday. The concert took place in Heiden in the eastern part of Switzerland. Tulku Lobsang la loved our music and was very moved by the unique sound of the JEWEL Ensemble that allows me to sing the ancient Tibetan Mantras in the most beautiful way.

80th Birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Wiesbaden

Dear friends, I am still overwhelmed. Yet again I received His Holiness blessings for presenting the 'OM MANI PEME HUM' Mantra together with my DAY TOMORROW Ensemble.

Looking back at a great 2014

My book has arrived!

My dear friends!
My book just arrived. I am holding my book in my hands and would like to express my wish that it may contribute to give people a fresh and positive impulse in their lives. The wisdom of the Tibetan culture can help us all regardless of our origin or religious background to understand our mind and overcome negative emotions, which is the base for peace in this world. Peace can not be forced by weapons. Peace can also not be bought. True peace begins with each one of us recognizing and understanding  who we really are. That's why I am convinced, that this beautiful Philosophy of my culture hold an enormous peace promoting potential for the modern world of the 21st century. The book might be translated soon into English and I will be happy to let you know as soon as this happens.
With my sincere love! Dechen

Coming Soon..

Dear friends
I am happy and proud to be part of the new BEYOND project again - with Tina Tuner, Regula Curti and Sawani ..., three wonderful, powerful voices.
It will be called `BEYOND LOVE WITHIN` - and is dedicated to the Divine Mother, the goddesses and Saints like Tara, Mary and Paravati, to the female power within all of us. 
I have been able to contribute with some beautiful buddhist prayers that praise the qualities of Arya Tara, the Swift Liberator.  I received them from my dear father Dagsay Rinpoche.
I hope the power of this music, the lyrics and our voices will touch you as they touched us when singing it for this new album which will be released end of may.
