Xin: heart mind

Secret Power of Tantrik Breathing by Swami Sivapriyananda. ISBN: 1594772894

Just above the anahata is a minor chakra called the manas chakra where the mind resides… The anahata is often called the home of the soul.
– Swami Sivapriyananda in Secret power of Tantrik breathing, p 21 Inner Traditions / Destiny books; New edition (18 Jun 2009) ISBN: 1594772894

This recalls the chinese xīn, heart-min () said to be the home of the shen.
