The Four Shambhala Dignities represent sacred qualities of the awakened warrior.

Meek, the first dignity, means the warrior manifests a sense of gentleness, genuineness, inquisitiveness and interest, without arrogance. Contentment comes from leading a life with appreciation of one’s good fortune and extending that sense of peace and well- being to others.

Perky, the second dignity, means the warrior manifests a sense of freshness, goodness, and cheerfulness – the world is vivid, clear and bright, which invites exertion and discipline. This discipline enriches the world with the confidence of joy and expresses itself as the ability to uplift any situation.
