Nothing says love better than the love symbol

Love is just a four-letter word in English. However, the feelings it expresses are much deeper and stronger than these four letters. This is probably the reason why people are constantly looking for different ways to express their love. This Christmas use the Chinese love symbol to express your feelings to your loved ones. 

What is the Chinese love symbol?

The symbol of love as used in this wonderful country is a beautiful way of expressing your love and emotions to the person who means everything to you. Of course, this is not confined to your beloved. It also concerns your parents, your children, your friends and everyone who add meaning to your life. 

The symbol looks something like this  


It is pronounced as ài, rhymes with the English word "eye".



However, this is the simplified version of this symbol. In traditional Chinese, it is written as



Again, it is pronounced as ài.






A close look at this love symbol will show you the character that means heart. It is present right in the middle symbol. Just take a look at this character in the middle. 心 This is the xīn and means the heart. 

The heart is in the middle of the characters that mean "accept", "feel", or "perceive", basically showing graceful emotion. 

Combine these characters and you get the symbol of love in Chinese. It means loving people through your heart and your actions. 

The symbol gives a wonderful meaning to love. Love is pure and it comes from the heart. However, if your actions do not express your feelings, your love may not be complete. So, if you want to love someone, love them completely with your heart and show it through your actions as well.


The origin of the Chinese love symbol

The concept of this love symbol was first developed by a Chinese philosopher by the name of Mozi in the 4th century BC. The symbol was used as a means to stress the importance of unconditional love and the need to offer it to everyone universally. The love offered should be without any expectation of reciprocation and should be given not to just family, friends, and people from one's clan but to everyone. 

Sometime later, the character began to be used for passionate caring love in Chinese Buddhism and selfless Ai or love was considered to be the key factor towards achieving enlightenment. These days, Ai is used to refer to the Western concept of love.

So you're saying this character for love devised by Mozi combines the characters for heart, accept, feel, and perceive? That's a neat idea :-) I've seen this symbol on necklace pendants.
