24 Returning

The Statement of the first hexagram

Returning. Continue.
In coming and going,
there is neither sickness nor distress.
Companions come without fault.
Returning is its Tao.
In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

Resting, then returning:
fortunate.
The third line:
Urgent returning, harsh danger.
No fault.
The fourth line:
Returning alone
in the middle of the road.

34 Great Vigor

The Statement of the second hexagram

Great vigor, gainful purity.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder in heaven above:
great vigor. The noble one
is never without reverence
and does not fail
in conduct.
