《道德经》(28)

2014-03-28    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

知其雄,守其雌,为天下溪。为天下溪,常德不离,复归于婴儿。
知其白,守其黑,为天下式。为天下式,常德不忒,复归于无极。
知其荣,守其辱,为天下谷。为天下谷,常德乃足,复归于朴。
朴散则为器, 圣人用之,则为官长,故大制不割。

【现代汉语】

知道自己的强大,却甘于处在谦退低矮的位置,能够容纳天下万物,能像山谷一样包容天下,‘道’的作用就不会流失,才能回归到如同婴儿一样的本初状态。

知道自己的能量,却甘于处在暗昧的位置,能够容纳天下万物,能像山谷一样包容天下,‘道’的作用才能得到巩固,从而达到返璞归真的状态。

真朴的‘道’迸发万物,合于‘道’的圣人运用真朴,成为天下的领袖。这样完善、开明的政治就不会被割裂、破坏。

Chapter 28

He who knows the masculine and keeps to the feminine
Will become the ravine of the world.
Being the ravine of the world,
He will never depart from the constant De,
But return to the state of infancy.
He who knows glory but keeps to disgrace
Will become the valley of the world.
Being the valley of the world,
He will be proficient in the constant De
And return to the state of simplicity.
He who knows the white but keeps to the black
Will become the principle of the world.
Being the principle of the world,
He will possess the constant De
And return to the state of ultimate infinity.
(When simplicity is broken up,
It is turned into vessels.
By using these vessels,
The sage becomes the head of officials.
Hence a perfect government is not carved out of artificiality.)

(王柯平 译)

其他版本:

The man who is willing be in self-effacing, low-lying position could contain all of the world just like the huge valley, even though he knows that he is powerful. The effect of 'Tao' will not be lost and he will return to the origin state like a firstborn.

The man who is willing be in dark and low-lying position could contain all of the world just like the huge valley, even though he knows that he is resplendent. The effect of 'Tao' will be consolidated and he will reach the pure state without any affectation.

The pure and origin Tao creates the universe. The sage use it to be the head of the people, thus the complete and enlightened polity will not be dissevered and demolished.
