The true seat of the mind is in the heart

316418_192042247545131_41150772_n“From a Buddhist perspective, the true seat of the mind is the heart — not the brain or the head.

Compassion and clear awareness are naturally together, and when we connect with this experience in the deep and genuine way, it is described as giving rise to “awakened heart” or “awakened mind.”

–Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
