Theory of Chinese Medicine
The first part of this book clarifies the aspects of the heart which have been variously translated as heart governor, heart protector, heart constrictor and pericardium. Xin zhu is discussed as ‘the heart as master’ and contrasted with the heart as a void. Xin bao luo is presented as the enveloping and connecting aspect of the heart, and tan zhong as the central temple within the chest – the sea of qi and gathering place of ancestral qi, the place of transmission for elation and joy.
