My youngest son is named Shin 真, the kanji taken from and given by my Sensei in Kobe means True, honest or sincere.

Coincidentally Wendy, our dojo is also Seishin 誠心, in this instance, the kanji for shin 心 is the same as that for heart/ spirit/ mind (Seishin = true heart, honest heart, true spirit, honest spirit, true mind, honest mind).

Pretty much goes along with what Peter has already said.

Hello Bryan,

A further coicidence is that both 誠 and 真 can ne read as makoto.

Best regards,
