    Three-fold Service
    1. Tan - (Physical) Sikhs should engage in useful work like the food preparation in the langar.
    2. Man - (Mental) Sikhs are required to study the holy book or Granth and share their knowledge with others.
    3. Dhan - (Material) Sikhs should give at least ten percent of their earnings to charity.

    Very nice diagram, I agree. Physically much can be done including aide to environment, animals, structures and centers, food and farming. Mentally, knowledge can be shared, stories, wisdom and intuitive understanding, as well as observations, research and specialized education. Materially whatever is best for individuals needs can be shared, from food, to objects for children, to homes etc.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
