Since his youth he was fascinated with Eastern thought and started practicing yoga in 1987. The pettiness of the business of music and the untimely death of his father led him to India in 1988 where he dove deeper into the the lifestyle and spirituality of India. He became a celibate monk at a Krishna Bhakti Ashram for  six years, where he intensely studied, meditated, and lived the ancient yogic texts.
