The original Richard Wilhelm translation for the hexagram line...

Hexagram 22
Pi - Grace

yin above: Kên / Keeping Still, Mountain
yin below: Li / The Clinging, Flame


Hexagram Twenty-Two/Line Six

Nine at the top means:
Simple grace. No blame.

Here at the highest stage of development all ornament is discarded. Form no longer conceals content but brings out its value to the full. Perfect grace consists not in exterior ornamentation of the substance, but in the simple fitness of its form.
