诸侯天子 and the princes present themselves before him with their faces to the north,
this is called kin (the autumnal audience).
天子 When he stands at the (usual) point (of reception) between the door and the screen,
and the dukes have their faces towards the east,
诸侯西 and the feudal princes theirs towards the west,
this is called Chao (the spring audience).
