With a great leader
they will find fortune.
They must remain without fault.

Otherwise, whether gain or loss,
there will be misfortune.

misfortune.

36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The earth's center
is filled with water.
The noble one supports
the people and cares for
everyone.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Brilliance
in the earth's core:
smothered light.
The noble one
governs the multitude
by obscurity-
but with enlightenment.
