Why do we associate love with “heart” and not any other organ ?




It was the thought of people of yore who didn't have a clear understanding of the functions of brain . Whether it's western or eastern medicine?People wrongly thought that the mind resides in the heart . Remember people say heartfelt condolences or love. This could be because it's the heart that responds to feelings by palpitations , tachycardia to certain feelings & bradycardia to some other feelings whereas the brain remains hidden & doesn't show any evidence of activity directly .

I think the reason is that during emotional excitement people feel palpitations or other sensations in the chest. Also during emotional distress (heartbreak) ppl tend to feel discomfort near sternum. I think that's why ppl associate heart with love.

Love is decided by Manas which is having its seat in Heart. So mano sthanam is in Hridayam,,
