Heaven within the mountain:
The image of
THE TAMING POWER OF THE GREAT.
Thus the superior man acquaints himself
with many sayings of antiquity
And many deeds of the past,
In order to strengthen his character thereby.
Heaven within the mountain points to
hidden treasures. In the words and deeds
of the past there lies hidden a treasure
that men may use to strengthen and
elevate their own characters.
The way to study the past is not
to confine oneself to mere knowledge
of history, but, through application of
this knowledge, to give actuality
to the past.
From Hexagram 26 - Ta Ch'u /
The Taming Power of the Great
