Who needs a hero?
Maybe this is a ‘guy thing,’ I’m not sure. But when I come out of the cinema having watched a Marvel film, I’m still in ‘superhero mode.’ I find myself kind of thinking that I might have these awesome skills, but I just haven’t uncovered them yet. Maybe I need to get bitten by a spider or something, and then my true potential will shine through.
Come on, am I really the only one? Surely you too secretly think you’ve got special powers!
This Saturday we will be discussing the question, who even needs a hero nowadays? Is ‘the hero’ merely a comforting notion that was useful in pre-technological times, or could there be something built into our nature that seeks out strong role models? If so, what makes a hero? Of course, in our discussion on Saturday we will search for answers from the Vedic texts, and in so doing provide some food for thought.
Lastly, this is a charity event, and we only ask that you RSVP in advance for catering purposes (and bring an appetite).
With best wishes,
