to recite (nian)

This character is pronounced as "nian". It means to recite or to read aloud.

 

Nian consists of two chinese characters: "now" or "at the present" (今), and "the heart" (心). Combining these two characters tells us  that to recite, the heart must be here and now. The presence of mind is most important. Let the heart "listens" to every word we read or recite. And, gently bring it back when it wanders!
