Abstract: 

The paper is devoted to exploration of the Tengrian religion and the religious outlook of the Turkic nations. At its core there is the cosmocentric model of the world with its philosophy of immortality. Analysis of numerous archaeological artefacts allowed us to make a conclusion that the concept of Silence (as a pause in turning of the wheel of immortality), and Music (as a phenomenon of eternal Life) have been imprinted in the Turkic philosophy throughout the history, and have remained its element.
