(Translated as in The Way of Tao, Vol 2 on CD-ROM)
The sutra
"Favour and disgrace cause one dismay,
What we value and what we fear are as if within the self."
What is meant by speaking thus of favour and disgrace?
Disgrace is being in a low position (after the enjoyment of favour).
The getting (of a favour) leads to the apprehension of losing it,
And the losing of it leads to the fear of still greater calamity.
This is what is meant by saying that favour and disgrace cause one dismay.
