In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.

60 Regulation

The Statement of the second hexagram

Regulation. Be pervasive.
One cannot be morally pure
through suffering and trial.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water above the lake:
regulation. The noble one
regulates number and
measure and discusses
virtuous conduct.
