62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the first hexagram

Small crossing. Continue for gainful purity.

Small matters can be done,

but not large matters.

Flying birds leave their sound:

it is unsuitable to go high-

the suitable is below.

Great fortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Birds fly from famine.
The second line:
Crossing to one's ancestors,

meeting one's dead mother.

Not reaching as far as one's king:

meeting his minister. No fault.
The fourth line:
No fault. Do not cross to meet them.

Going is dangerous. Absolutely refrain.

Do not act: be everlasting and firm.
The fifth line:
Dense clouds, no rain.

At my western outskirts, the duke shoots,

takes another in the cave.
The sixth line:
Not meeting is excessive.

Flying birds separate: misfortune.

This is called calamity and blundering.

9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder above the
mountain: small crossing.
The noble one acts with
more than enough
reverence, destroys
excessive grief, and uses
more than enough

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
