Classical Interpretation

The Clinging (30) points upwards.

The image

That what is bright rises twice: the image of fire. Thus the great man brings light to the four quarters of the world by perpetuating this brightness.

The judgement

The clinging. Perseverance furthers. It brings success. Care of the cow brings good fortune. Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
