The Judgement

Approach has supreme success.
Perseverance furthers.
When the eighth month comes,
There will be misfortune.

The Image

The earth above the lake:
The image of Approach.
Thus the superior man is inexhaustible
In his will to teach,
And without limits
In his tolerance and protection of the people.

The Lines

Six at the top means:
Greathearted approach.
Good fortune. No blame.

41. Sun / Decrease

------- 
--- --- above Kên Keeping Still, Mountain
--- --- 
--- --- 
------- below Tui The Joyous, Lake
------- 

The Judgement

Decrease combined with sincerity
Brings about supreme good fortune
Without blame.
One may be persevering in this.
It furthers one to undertake something.
How is this to be carried out?
One may use two small bowls for the sacrifice.

The Image

At the foot of the mountain, the lake:
The image of Decrease.
Thus the superior man controls his anger
And restrains his instincts.
