Sai Ram. The Paramatma resides in our heart and hence the heart is superior. Not the physical heart but our spiritual heart. Sai Ram

We become too emotional when the heart rules the mind and become too logical and methodical when the mind rules the heart. So it qould be better if there is an equlibrium between the two instead of one beibg superior to another.

Definitely Heart is superior . Mind can think logically but cannot conclude positively without interaction from the heart . No doubt Heart makes the mind week - that is one of the resons humans have survived while the dinosaurs haven't!

Whatever is invisible like
God is superior. Heart is visible but mind is not. Even the situs of the mind is not known to anyone. Hence mind alone is superior.

Heart is in the domains of only poets other wise heart or emotional aspects of human nature is also in the brain/mind like so many others including analytical or reality center. All centers remain vying with each other to get the better of others. He who is powerful reality center he become an even headed person like Zulfie of reality show. Raja Choudhary is another person whose all centers are rubbing shoulders in haphazard way. Emotional centers of Chand Mohammad is ruling like Hitler these days Wish his emotional rule last more than 6 years unlike Hitlers bad rule(1939-45).So it is all in mind. Heart is just a laborer of body supposed to pump, pump and pump till life say good bye.

Functions of heart and mind are complimentary in nature..Each has it's own role and none is superior or inferior to the other .
