Tree on Hill (3)
山木(三)

1 To be convenient to alarm people, the Duke Ling of Wei planed to build a bell pavilion. However, there is no budget for it. The duke ordered Beigong She to raise money by himself and build it as early as possible.
卫灵公想要盖一座钟楼,这样有急事,想发出警报时也比较方便。可是府库里没有这笔经费。卫灵公指示北宫奢自己想办法筹钱,同时要及早将钟楼建好。
2 How to do it without money?
可是没钱又怎么办事呢?
3 It was a drudgery to ask people to pay extra money out of the normal taxes for building the bell pavilion. All officials were waiting to see Beigong She’s gaffe.
在正规赋税之外,还要百姓另外再出钱以建造钟楼,肯定是件苦差; 文武百官于是都在旁等着看北宫奢如何出丑。
4 Three months passed in an instant. The officials heard no complaint from people who were asked to pay money by government, but the money for the bell pavilion had been raised.
时间过得很快,三个月一晃就过去了。然而市井之间,并没有听到对政府要求百姓出钱以建钟楼所发出的怨言,而盖建钟楼的钱却已经筹齐了。

北宫奢为卫灵公赋敛以为钟,为坛乎郭门之外。 三月而成上下之县。
5 The officials all expect to know how he raising the money; however, they hesitated to ask him.
朝中官员莫不议论纷纷,都很想知道北宫奢是如何办到的,可是又不好意思追问。
6 Someday Qingji, the prince, he couldn’t suppress his curiosity. He went to ask Beigong She. “Buddy, all people are curious to know how you accomplishing the task but they feel small to ask you. Well! How do you raise it on earth?”
有一天,王子庆忌再也憋不住了,他跑到北宫奢那儿去问:「北宫兄,大家对你如何完成这样的任务都觉得好奇,可是又不好意思问。请问,你是怎么做到的?」

王子庆忌见而问焉,曰:「子何术之设?」
7 Beigong She answered, “In my concept, tactics, strategies, or scheme should not be used to induce, force or cheat others so as to reach my goal. Therefore, in raising money for the bell pavilion, I didn’t use any tactics, nor any policy and propaganda.
北宫奢回答说:「在我的信念里,无论做任何事,都不应该使用心机、 计谋、 策略等去诱导、强迫、欺骗别人以达到我们的目的。所以对筹钱建钟楼这件事,我并没有使出任何特别的策略,也没有搬出什么政策来宣导这回事。
8 My principle of handling social affairs is: things are imperfect after cutting and polishing; return to nature is the best way. Therefore, near the gate of city I set up a simple pavilion where I hung a bullet board on which I announced that the Duke Ling wanted to build a bell pavilion, so that in any urgent situation it is convenient to alarm people.
我所知道的处事原则是:雕琢后的东西都不完美,唯有返朴归真的法子最好。所以在城门附近,我盖了一个简单的坛架。坛架上面挂着一块告示牌,上面说明灵公想要建一座钟楼,以便于一旦有事发生时,可以敲钟向民众示警。
9 Sitting there like an ignorant baby, I was shyly, uneasily and in silence. Many people come and go through the gate everyday, I didn’t force anyone to approach the pavilion who is not interested; however, most of them would stop before the pavilion to discuss about the case; some people disagreed it while others agreed;. I was open to anyone who is curious or interested in it. Among the audiences some of them donated nothing while others gave some donations. The amount of donation is absolutely up to personal will and individual wealth condition; some one gave less, some one donated more.
我就像是一个不识字的婴儿,诚惶诚恐,一言不发,有点羞涩地坐在那儿。百姓们来来往往都会停下来,聚集在坛前议论纷纷; 我欢迎任何好奇有兴趣的人来到坛前,没兴趣,不想来的我也绝不勉强。这些聚集在坛前的人,有的批评,有的赞同; 有的人不捐钱,有的人捐小钱; 而有的人捐得多些,这都随个人的意愿及财力去决定。
10 Day after day like this, I obtained enough money after three months.
就这样日复一日的经过三个月,我就渐渐筹得了建造钟楼的款项了。

奢曰:「一之间,无敢设也。奢闻之:『既雕既琢,复归于朴。』侗乎其无识,傥乎其怠疑;萃乎芒乎,其送往而迎来;来者勿禁,往者勿止;从其强梁,随其曲傅,因其自穷。
11 The advantage of my way is that people are voluntary to donate money. The donation depends on people’s personal wealth and will; it is not like other exorbitant taxes, it will not become a burden to people. Of course, the more important impact of this case is that it has established a model that the government respects and conforms to people’s decision. People bear more credit to the government is a fact worthy of congratulating to all officials like us.
我这方法的好处是,百姓捐钱都是属于自愿的。大家量力而为,所以不会类似苛捐杂税般增加百姓的负担。当然最重要的一点,是树立了政府顺从民意,尊重民意的典范。百姓对政府的信心大增,这才是值得我们庆幸的。」

故朝夕赋敛而毫毛不挫,而况有大涂者乎!」
