This article, considers thatthe relation of heart and mind in the Asian Societies. Theheart as the center of ıntuition and the mind as the emperor of the castle of body. YunusEmre describes the heart as “the throne of God” whereas he refers to heart as the center ofthe Divine Light, mysteries, the wisdom and knowledge. Whereas the mind is the emperorof the castle of body, the heart is like a treasure between the mind and the body. Thistreasure opens up with the power of love. When the heart is accompanied by the mind, itattains at the station of emperorship. For Yunus Emre, reasoning and love are not remoteand independent realities. On the contrary they are intertwined.
