Footsteps of Heroes
Following in the Footsteps of Heroes Of every great hero good and true, the story ever so appeals -rises a warmth in the heart as for a loved and trusted friend !Inspired on to aspiration, at their doorsteps the bosom kneels !A heroic life may have a beginning, but how may it ever end !?How may ever die that which does to others freely nectar lend !?Ambrosia is their tread in any heart, which purifies and heals !The path to life and joy eternal, their footstep each reveals ! ~ k.b.mann (from an epic poem in-the-making, about Karn) The search for heroes is a very compelling feature of the human spirit, because heroes embody example not merely precept – but, truly inspiring heroes are very rare in history. There is one timeless hero who towers above all others – his name is Karn or Radhai. If each person acquired but a fraction of his virtues, our darkened and troubled world would quickly become heavenly. Karn, who left his indelible mark on this world several thousand years ago, is, to this day, cherished by millions as a symbol of self-sacrifice, generosity, nobility and courage. He was a warrior without peer in the history of mankind, but his greatest victory, and example for humanity, was his conquest of self.
