There are many ways to support the work of Sikh Dharma International. Many of our donors tithe to Sikh Dharma through Dasvandh. This is a powerful way to increase personal prosperity and support all of the work of SDI. You can also learn more about and give designated contributions to our Special Purpose programs listed below.
Sikh Dharma Dasvandh
A Powerful Tool for Prosperity
Dasvandh (tenth part), is the sacred art of tithing to your spiritual source. The Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, encouraged his students to give unconditionally to God through Dasvandh as a way of giving back and opening the avenues of returned prosperity and abundance, ten fold. He said,
“Let us bow our heads in prayer and let us open our hearts. Through the ancient teachings of many spiritual practices we have learned about giving. In Sikh Dharma we give back a tenth of our day to the infinite by doing a 2 1/2 hour morning sadhana. We tithe 1/10 of our income by giving Dasvandh.
Dasvandh is the expression of our gratitude for the gifts received through this technology. By giving from the heart, we reconnect to that source, elevating our soul and fulfilling our destiny. When you give Dasvandh, you give to your own future. The psyche of genetic process creates a harmony in the molecular co-existence. When you give to Guru and God, you give with faith and commitment. This makes Mother Earth and Heavenly Father to commit to return back in many folds.”
Your support of Dasvandh enriches all of the programs, services, outreach and Dharmic education that Sikh Dharma International provides to our global sangat. Thank you for your support!

Sikhs Feed People Fund
Supporting Free Meal Programs Around the World
Sikh Dharma International’s newest Service Program, Sikhs Feed People, focuses on highlighting a central tenet of Sikh Dharma lifestyle, which is to promote equality through Langar or free kitchen/meals. SDI is dedicated to lending awareness and financial support to programs all over the world where conscious people are providing sustenance to the less fortunate in their area. One such program is Food4Kids NM (pictured here), which relies on donations and volunteered hours to pack close to 300 bags of food every week that are given to local kids who don’t get fed proper meals over the weekend. The Sikhs Feed People initiative also aims to offer support and tools for new communities wanting to provide free meals in their area. Your support of this program will go directly to grants that fund free meals or langar programs that are being sponsored around the world. Thank you for your support!

Giving and Receiving the Blessing of Kirtan
Sikh Dharma International’s KirtanXchange program connects communities around the world with the experience of live Kirtan and provides mentoring and support for emerging Kirtan Jathas. Kirtan is considered by Sikhs to be the highest form of praise. Shabads or hymns are at the heart of the Sikh services, ceremonies and celebrations. We are so blessed to be able to share the Guru’s Bani with Sangats all over the world.
Your support of this program allows us to send more Jathas around the world to communities who do not have access to Gurdwaras or other live kirtan events. Thank you for your support!
