Many great Vaisnavas like Vrindavana dasa Thakura have talked about the heart as side of the brain which deals with psychology and emotions, feelings, and inspiration – the irrational element of life. We tend to ask, “What do you think?” rather than “What’s in your heart?” But in many ways the heart is the true measure, vision and worth of any human being – where he or she is at, so to speak. So in this sense the heart is more than just a bodily organ that pumps blood throughout the body.
