Yama and Niyama Fairies, Brazil

Yama and Niyama Fairies Fly into the Hearts of Children

at Sol Nasciente, Brazil

(as told to Kamala Alister by Soma Brys)

This little school at the Ananda Kiirtana Master Unit in Brazil found a touching way to share Yama and Niyama with the children. Each month they had a special event when a new fairy was introduced, such as Brahmacarya or Iishvara Pranidhana fairies. Staff wrote special stories for each one that the teacher presented with the dolls. The children each got to take the fairy doll home for one night, with a special letter to the parents telling them the meaning of the doll.
