HAVE YOU GOT THE HEAD AND THE HEART?
CONNECTING WISDOM AND VIRTUES BY VENERABLE RATHANASARA
Head represents wisdom, understanding, and intellectual capacity. Heart, on the other hand, represents the human values and wonderful virtuous qualities such as compassion, goodwill, friendship, generosity and loving kindness. In short, heart represents virtues, while head (brain) represents wisdom. Just like how a bird needs a pair of wings to fly, we need both virtues and wisdom, in order to lead a pure and righteous life, and be a noble human being in the society.
