36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the first hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.

The changing lines

The fourth line:
Enter at the left front, capturing

the heart of smothered light.

Going in and out of gates and halls.
The fifth line:
The smothered light of Jizi:

gainful virtue.
The sixth line:
Not a bright night.

First rise into the sky,

then plunge into the earth.

13 Kindred

The Statement of the second hexagram

The kindred in the wilderness.
Continue.
Advance across the great river.
Gain by a wise one's purity.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire rises into heaven:
kindred. The noble one
groups and sorts
all that must be done.
