Hṛdayakamala (हृदयकमल).—The “spaee of the heart” as the space of experience of being is a notion found earliest in Vedic and Upaniṣadic thought itself. Consequently, artistic experience appealed to this inner space of the sahṛdaya, literally, “one with heart”, here to mean “aesthete” or “connaisseur”. (see Mānasāra LXX, 111)
