Dignity (Skt. hri; Tib. ngo tsa shepa; Wyl. ngo tsha shes pa) is one of the eleven virtuous states and seven noble riches. It is defined as the attitude of refraining from unwholesome actions on account of one's own conscience and trust in the Dharma.

==Alternative Translations==


dignity: "The human potential for for intelligence and dignity is attuned to experiencing the brilliance of the bright blue sky, the freshness of green fields, and the beauty of the trees and mountains. We have an actual connection to reality that can wake us up and make us feel basically, fundamentally good. Shambhala vision is tuning in to our ability to wake ourselves up and recognize that goodness can happen to us. In fact, it is happening already." (pg 31) "Human Dignity is not based on monetary wealth. ... .Dignity comes from using your inherent human resources, by doing things with your own bare hands - on the spot, properly and beautifully. You can do that even in the worst of the worst situations, you can still make your life elegant." (pg 81) "By being on the spot, your life can become workable and even wonderful. Your realize that you are capable or sitting like a king or queen on a throne." (see Universal Monarch, and Four Dignities) "The regalness of that situation shows you the dignity that comes from being still and simple."
