What is Kokoro

Kokoro is a common Japanese word that carries meanings conveyed by the English words "mind" and "heart." It is used as an equivalent of the Chinese word xin and covers almost the same range of meanings. The Japanese use Chinese characters to write Japanese, and have studied Chinese literature as an essential part of both secular and Buddhist education for more than 1,500 years, which has led to a convergence of meaning between Chinese and Japanese for many classical words.

The Chinese ideogram for xin depicts the shape of the heart—the actual organ in the human body. Since ancient Chinese people thought the heart was where psychological function took place, the character conveyed a range of meanings including the heart organ, heart generally, mind, feeling, intention, centre, and core.

Originally, Kokoro referred to the beat of the heart, which was considered the essential organ of life and the source of all activities. By extension, Kokoro refers to all human activities affecting the outside world through intention, emotion, and intellect.

Kokoro, then, has three basic meanings: the heart and its functions; mind and its functions; and centre, or essence.

Thought for Today

86,400 Seconds

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with €86,400. Every evening whatever part of the balance you fail to use during the day is deleted. What would you do? Draw out every penny and use it well, of course!!! Each of us has such a bank - Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Invest the day's deposits well, or the loss is yours. How could you bring the most contentment, happiness and benefit to yourself and others? The clock is running.
