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

The Influence Of Gossip

I cannot afford to overlook the influence that other people have on me. To what extent do I check that I am not being influenced by gossip? Negativity in the mind is like poison. Negative thoughts are the seeds of negative actions. Gossip and guessing bring sorrow, heaviness and distrust. Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil. Think no evil.
