Chante in Persian culture means a small bag containing small items of precious value, ones wisdom, knowledge, and intelligent tricks. We Iranian would say; "show me what do you have in your chante" which means bring out and reveal your ultimate wisdom and intellectual capabilities, or what are your hidden tricks and swindles are. Also we may say He/she doesn't have anything in his Chante (chizi tu chantash nist). This phrase was first used in the fifteen century by the famous Persian and Tajik writer, poet and historian, Jami. Since then Iranian use this phrase to refer to someone who is empty of financial, intellectual and spiritual values.
Referring to Dervishes, Chante means a small bag containing drugs and coins collected by going door to door begging. Dervish on the other hand refers to someone who is earthy, and while he is poor financially, he is rich and prosperous spiritually.
