Tibetan term
ཆོག་ཤེས་
transcription: Chokshe
wylie transliteration: Chog shes

Chokshe is a Tibetan term for contentment. In Shambhala it is usually discussed in terms of the four dignities and is the Tibetan term for the first dignity of meek.

A literal rendering offered in the 2009 Nalanda Translation Committee newsletter was "to know enough, to know what is enough" and they asked Changling Rinpoche about the term he added "The king has to have a chok-she quality. If not, he’ll burn himself. If he does not have chok-she, there will be revolution. It means that the king should not tax people excessively."
