Dasvandh (Panjabi: ਦਸਵੰਧ) literally means “a tenth part” and refers the act of donating ten percent of one’s harvest, both financial and in the form of time and service such as seva to the Gurdwara and/or anywhere else. It falls into Guru Nanak’s concept of VAND CHAKKO (Sharing by Giving). The concept of dasvandh was implicit in Guru Nanak’s Shabads (Hymns): “Ghali Khai Kichhu Hathhu Dei, Nanak Rahu Pachhanahi Cei — He alone, O Nanak, knows the way who eats out of what he earns by his honest labor and shares part of it with others” (SGGS, 1245). The idea of sharing and giving was nourished by the institutions of Sangat (holy assembly) and Langar (Free Community Kitchen) the Gurus had established.
