Symbology of the Heart.
Hindus consider the heart (hridaya) as Brahmapura, the dwelling place of Brahma. If, likewise, in the Christian vocabulary, it is said that the heart contains the Kingdom of God, it is that this center of individuality, towards which the person returns in his spiritual journey, represents the primordial state, and therefore the place of divine activity.
The double movement (systole and diastole) of the heart also makes it the symbol of the double movement of expansion and reabsorption of the universe. For this reason the heart is Prajapati; it is Brahma in its producing function, it is the origin of the cycles of time. The light of the spirit, that of intellectual intuition, of revelation, shines in the cave of the heart.
Egyptian hieroglyphic writing represents the heart by a glass. And indeed the heart is related to the holy Graal. On the other hand, it should be noted that the inverted triangle, which is a representation of the chalice, is also the symbol of the heart. The cup containing the immortality brew is necessarily reached in “the heart of the world”.
The supreme desire of each one is the one formulated by Parehi d’El-Kab: “You can go through eternity in sweetness of heart, in the favors of the God who is in you”. Thus the heart is in us the very symbol of the divine presence and of the consciousness of such a presence. The heart according to the Bible, occupies a central place in the spiritual life: it thinks, it decides, it outlines projects, it affirms its responsibilities. Memory and imagination replace the heart, as well as vigilance, hence this phrase: “I sleep, but my heart watches.” The heart is associated with the spirit and sometimes the terms are mixed due to their identical meanings. Hence the expressions: “new spirit and new heart”, “contrite heart and contrite spirit. The heart is always more linked to the spirit than to the soul.
Guenón has observed that the heart has the shape of an inverted triangle. As the symbols that take this form, the heart would refer “to the passive or feminine principle of the universal manifestation … while the (symbols) that are outlined by the right triangle correspond to the active or masculine principle.” In India, the inverted triangle is one of the main symbols of Shakti, a feminine element of being, as well as of the primordial waters.
