36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the first hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.

The changing lines

The first line:
Smothered light in flight, hanging wings.

The wise one travels and has no food

for three days, but finds the destination:

the host responds.
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.

53 Gradually

The Statement of the second hexagram

A woman marries: fortune.
Gainful 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

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