47. K'un - Oppression (Exhaustion)

Tui The joyous, Lake
K'an The abysmal, Water

The Judgement

OPPRESSION. Success. Perseverance.
The great man brings about good fortune.
No blame.
When one has something to say,
It is not believed.

The Image

There is not water in the lake:
The image of EXHAUSTION.
Thus the superior man stakes his life
On following his will.
