11 Prospering

The Statement of the first hexagram

Prospering: the vile goes,

the great comes.

Fortune. Continue.

The changing lines

The second line:
Encompass the wasteland by crossing the river

without a boat, but do not advance so far

that you abandon comrades to perish.

Win honor by a middle course.

36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth combine:
prospering.
The empress uses wealth
to fulfill the way
of heaven and earth.
She supports the order
of heaven and earth for
people on all sides.
 
 

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.
