My Faith – A Sikh is Not Afraid – Sikhism

16 min.Series (documentary)Children's films

Deenpal's hair has never been cut and has grown all the way down to his knees. What you get from God, you must keep. He meditates every day and goes to the temple at least once a week. He is a football goalkeeper and he dreams about being the best in the world. But he still has a long way to go – he is afraid of throwing himself after the ball and often panics when he has to do a goal kick. He has to practice and practicing will make him a better Sikh. A Sikh has to be brave and strong like a lion – and whoever wants to achieve this must practice hard and meditate daily – and thereby gain spiritual power.
