"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

If Dhamma was in the heart, we would not need the suttas. Anyone could look into their "heart" and find the truth. We know this isn't so.
"highest convention is required to reach the ultimate"--not sure I get that.
