a short question: Is every 3-Sasakian manifold a Sasaki-Einstein manifold? If not, do you have an example? If yes, how can I prove this?
Thanks and best regards

Yes, because a manifold is Sasaki-Einstein if and only if its metric cone is Ricci-flat Kähler, whereas the cone of a 3-sasakian manifold is hyperkähler.
See, for instance, Bär's "Real Killing spinors and holonomy" published in CMP.
