Gathering Together [Massing]


Gathering Together. Success.

The king approaches his temple.

It furthers one to see the great man.

This brings success. Perseverance furthers.

To bring great offerings creates good fortune.

It furthers one to undertake something.


Over the earth, the lake:

The image of Gathering Together.

Thus the superior man renews his weapons

In order to meet the unforseen.

5. If in gathering together one has position, This brings no blame. If there are some who are not yet sincerely in the work, Sublime and enduring perseverance is needed. Then remorse disappears.

4. Great good fortune. No blame.

3. Gathering together amid sighs. Nothing that would further. Going is without blame. Slight humiliation.

2. Letting oneself be drawn Brings good fortune and remains blameless. If one is sincere, It furthers one to bring even a small offering.

1. If you are sincere, but not to the end, There will sometimes be confusion, sometimes gathering together. If you call out, Then after one grasp of the hand you can laugh again. Regret not. Going is without blame.
