[Page 20]

Lǐ Shēn Wú Wéi Zé Shén Yuè Lǐ Guŏ Wú Shì Zé Rén Ān Sān Shén
in the management of the Body except to Do Nothing and Remain Passive (Wu Wei).
Therefore, the Gods are happy to put in order the Nation
so that it may become a place of leisure.
Then people can find peace through the Three Gods (San Shen).

Sān Dān Tiān Zhī Shén Shì Yĕ
That these are the Three Cinnarbar Field's (San Dan Tian) Gods is correct.

Shù Yán Áo Wú Yí Yōu
Rapidy Rising Like Sparks From an Agitated Fire (Shu Yan),
and to then to casually stroll about.

Shù Yán Jí Fā Yĕ Xià Wén Yún Jià Yán Jiē Shēng Wàng Dōng Méng Huò Yún Shù Lóng Míng Wú Yí Yōu Wèi Xuán Jiĕ Zhī Yĕ
Rapidy Rising Like Sparks From an Agitated Fire (Shu Yan),
[above the] sickness and hardship down below.
The writings say that riding up like Rising Sparks from an Agitated Fire (Yan)
to recieve Life is Absurd (Wang).
However, in the East the Mongolian Peoples say that 'Rapid Dragon' (Shu Long)
is the name used to express this thing.
Not spending any effort worrying about what to call this,
there still remain unresolved many of the differences.
