Why is this project named ‘Tanagokoro’ Project?

In Japanese, ‘Tanagokoro” means “palm”.

In contrast to the common word for hand, “Te”, “Tanagokoro” means ‘Te no kokoro” (the palm’s heart), which implies deeper meanings, such as “something precious” or “pure mind”. “Tanagokoro” is a rather poetic alternative to “Te (hand)”, but it is still fondly used in the Japanese language.


Furthermore, for your interest:

明珠在掌 (Myoujyu tanagokoroni ari):“Your treasure is already in your hand” 
(みょうじゅ たなごころに あり)

This Zen phrase means that you do not need to go anywhere to seek happiness. Every important thing you need in your life is already within you.

In addition to learning how to read and write “Heart” in Kanji, I hope this Tanagokoro project teaches students that they always have something valuable in the palm of their hands.

Enjoy!!
