Imagine being transported into the world of fairies, and listening to a story that not only entertains your children, but also teaches them some of the important lessons of the world. Anjali’s new CD entitled The Fairy’s Flowers will do just that.
The story, written by Mukti Hava Bauman and adapted by Didi Anandarama, is a 40-minute mixture of narrative and songs that are designed to teach your children lessons in the ten cardinal values: non-harming, benevolent truth, non-stealing, universal love, simple living, purity of mind and body, contentment, service, spiritual knowledge, and contemplation.

This CD is a gem worth telling all your friends about! Bravo, Anjali!” ~ Wendy Willtrout, VP of Operations, Anusara Inc.
“My children were captivated from the start! They are clearly enchanted and moved by the story, and the beautiful, loving vocals of the artist. We have listened to this CD many times and they always prefer to hear it all the way through. We are rarely so absorbed by a recording – it is simply brilliant!”
~ Deanna Bordelon, RSc.P., Creative Life Spiritual Center
“Anjali’s gentle voice sings and brings peace to our lives as we listen to the sweet story of the boy Jonathan. We find many references of The Fairy’s Flowers in our daily lives. When life is hectic, we will turn on the CD and cuddle – I even sing along. My favorite days are when there is no other music but my children singing the sweet melodies they have heard from The Fairy’s Flowers.” ~ Charlie Paul, Co-founder, Parents with Awareness
“The Fairy’s Flowers is a unique experience for both adults and children: adults, through both the music and the story, can learn how to guide children into living a life of love; children’s capacity to love is enhanced through the CD as well.”
~ P.K. McCary, Storyteller/Founder of The Peace Hour
“In our house, the CD is a big success. The children love the CD. Pieter says: Can I hear the CD with the monkey? And all of us are singing along with the songs. The story flows very naturally, so they are absorbed by it. By singing the songs, those [universal] values are internalized.”~ Lauw Klaassen, Storyteller
