We are so grateful for the support of our Dasvandh Network backers for the SikhNet Stories project. Last year we were able to to animate and create 12 stories, and our work is continuing. 

This year we are looking at different styles of animation, as well as animations for different age groups. We have already started creating video books for very young children with inspiring and heart-warming messages. 

Children of all faiths and religions enjoy these stories of spiritual principles and consciousness. Stories highlight universal values of helping others, compassion, prayer, courage, sharing, and the oneness of all people capture the hearts and imagination of children of all ages. Parents can rest assured that the message delivered to your children is positive, uplifting, of good spirit  and has valuable life lessons!

The average cost to animate a story is between $2400-3000, depending on the length.

Your contribution of any amount will help us continue to animate. Our goal is to animate SIX more stories for kids!

Here are a couple of the stories we animated last year with YOUR help - thank you! 

          

The Stillness of Sr Teg Bahadur     The Birth of Guru Gobind Singh

Your support is so important for this work. Will you donate today? 

 

 

You can watch and listen to many more stories on our website or on the Stories apps for iOS and Android.

    Dream Big Little Kaur

    Thank you so much for your support of SikhNet Stories animations. In this update we are very proud to share another addition to the exciting new area of video books for young children. 

    Our latest video book, done in collaboration with the authors and Brave Lion Books, has now been released. This younger age appropriate animation teaches little Kaurs about many great Sikh women, from the wives and sisters of the Gurus as well as other warrior princesses who will surely instill confidence and values in their young hearts.

     

     

    Please watch today and continue with your support of SikhNet Stories. 

    Thank you.

    Guru Nanak and the Cannibal

    Thank you for your ongoing support of SikhNet Stories animation work! We have a new animation to announce - Guru Nanak and the CAnnibal. 

    Sometimes it's hard to imagine how cruel people can be! This story about Guru Nanak involves someone named Kauda whose heart was so twisted and hardened, that he would capture and then eat travelers! This time he captured Mardana - the companion of Guru Nanak! 

    Watch the new animation now, and please share widely.

    Guru Tegh Bahadur Gives His Head

    We are very blessed to inherit the teachings and history of our Gurus. In fact, it is written in Siri Guru Granth Sahib that "the stories of one's ancestors make the children good children." This is a pivotal story that lives on forever. 

    "Give Up Your Life But Do Not Give Up Your Faith"


    One of the great teachings of the Gurus is in the fact that it was only after great sacrifice that the Sikhs were taught warfare. This balance of sublime acceptance and ferocious self-defense is a value that is inherent in this epic tale. That is why we feel it is important to share it in a way that is easiest to understand. 

    We are happy to present this effort in honor of the Great Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib's 300th Joti Jot this year. May our future generations, and humanity itself, benefit from Guru Sahib and his message.

    Our latest animations!

    Thanks to you, we are happy to announce our most recent animations along with two new audio stories that will be animated in the future. 

     

    Singh the Lion: "Once upon a time there was a boy named Kirat Singh. Kirat went to school like any other boy, and he was really into animals. They were on his lunchbox, notebook, mural on his bedroom wall and his room was full of animal toys. “Animals are my friends, I love all the animals in my life!”  There was something special about Kirat… he had a very unique way of seeing the world… sometimes those animals in his room and in his notebooks would come alive!..."  

     

    Guru Arjan Dev Sacrifices for Truth: Nothing in this world lasts forever. Everything is temporary… well there is something that actually does last forever, do you know what that is?  The truth. Truth lasts forever. And the teachings of the True Guru are perfectly true. 

    In addition to these two new audio stories, we have animated three new stories, which will be released August-October. We'll post another update! 

    Guru Nanak and Prayer

    Happiness & Success, Part 1

    Happiness & Success, Part 2

    Please join us for our Virtual Gala on July 31st, 2021 celebrating 25 years of SikhNet!
