62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the second 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 Image of the first hexagram

Wood on the mountain:
gradually.
The noble one dwells
in high moral character
and reforms
popular customs.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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