45 Collecting

The Statement of the second hexagram

The king draws near to the temple:
gain by seeing a great person.
Make an offering with purity,
using great sacrificial beasts. Fortune.
Gain by having a place to go.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The wind moving above
the earth: beholding.
The ancient kings
inspected the provinces
and territories to establish
the right teachings.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Lake above the earth.
Collecting. The noble one
collects the tools of war
to guard against
unforeseen danger.
