Correction, commentary, translation: Jinju2Saram



In this text "gang" refers to the guide rope at the edge of a fisher net. Let's have a look at the picture below:

When you pull the "byeo-ri" (the guide rope), the "byeo-rit-jul" (the main ropes of the net) tighten, which causes the "geu-mul-ko" (the net) to contract and gather the fish inside the net. Comparable, when the wife acts as the guide rope and pulls the husband, who acts as the main ropes and follows the guiding well, to the right direction, the family can make harmony and become happy. Furthermore they will be able to complete the Dao of wife and husband, which is the root of the human Dao. Actually, out of all the verses of the Sagangyukryun the part about wife and husband is the most important, because when the Dao of wife and husband is complete, it becomes the motive power for dragging out the Sangsaeng world.

 

So far in the Sanggeuk world of the early heaven people didn't put enough effort into trying to make harmony. Therefore, Yin-Yang couldn't make harmony and the humans didn't properly succeed, so everything lacks something (politics, education system, society, etc.). Thus there are only empty shells remained now. In the later heaven this happening shouldn’t be repeated again. Briefly worded: from now on the people who cannot accept a wife guiding the husband or a women as a leader, will never be able to put their footstep in the later heaven. Therefore, you need to wake up your mind and accept this perception: The Women-World is coming!
