In Asian languages [such as Mandarin],
the word for ‘mind’ and
the word for ‘heart’ are the same word [心].
So when we hear the word ‘mindfulness’,
we have to inwardly also hear ‘heartfulness’
in order to grasp it even as a concept,
and especially as a way of being.
~ Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (Coming to Our Senses)
