Four chokshyaks (Tib. ཅོག་བཞག་བཞི་, chok shyak shyi, Wyl. cog bzhag bzhi) — the ‘four ways of leaving things as they are’ in Dzogchen practice.

“View, like a mountain, leave it as-it-is.
Meditation, like an ocean: leave it as-it-is.
Action, appearances: leave them as they are.
Fruition, unaltered: leave it as-it-is.”

The last one is sometimes given as “Fruition, rigpa: leave it as it is.”
