 needs one glyph from subfont 38. As you see from 
 , U+3893  is the old form of U+969C ( 
 ), so that's the only change I made  towards the
 end of line 4 of the group of 6. Attached is the example
 input tex file and output from latex then dvipdf , with
 bsmi. For most purposes, it probably is alright to make the
 switch this way from U+3893 to U+969C .

 online versions of Mozi uses the somewhat unrelated U+5EAB (
 ) , such as http://phil.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/project/mobian/canon2/b19.htm
 , and some also uses the somewhat related U+7634 . I'd
 suggest just use U+969C unless you really want the antique
If you click on "show commentery" of verse 120 at 
http://ctext.org/mozi/canon-ii , it does say


i.e. different scholars argue about U+969C ( = "in the shadow of light" ) 
versus U+5EAB (= "the concentrate of light") .
A rough translation (as far as I can read it - I do read chinese natively, but 
this is antique stuff so...) would be

scholar Bud says U+3893, old version is U+5EAB, sholar Lu changed it based on 
meaning. Comment: Lu's copy-editing is correct. The scene is hidden in the 
shadow as U+969C, that's what the optics scientists say, one cannot see a thing 
behind crossed light beams. Scholar Yan says it should be U+5EAB to mean the 
focus of light, not so. This reading of canon II, verse 120.
