Ten dharmic activities (Tib. ཆོས་སྤྱོད་བཅུ་, chö chö chu, Wyl. chos spyod bcu) — ten activities related to the Dharma, mentioned in Maitreya's Distinguishing the Middle from Extremes (Madhyantavibhanga):

Copying texts, making offerings, charity,
Study, reading, memorizing,
Explaining, reciting aloud,
Contemplating and meditating—
These ten activities
Bring merit beyond measure.
