I Have Become a Hero is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti. This discourse is the fifth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 34.[1]


Life is to fight. Now when one starts fight, then he becomes a man in human structure. He is no longer a brute in human structure, he is a man in human structure. And in that phase he says: "O Lord, by Your mercy, by Your grace, I have become a hero, I have started fighting against debasing forces functioning within my mind, functioning within my family, functioning within the society. So by Your grace I have become a hero. I am a hero, I am a viira; Thou art Viireshvara (Lord of heroes)."

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that only when a man starts to battle against malicious forces within and without his mind can he truly be called a man. Anandamurti then says that sádhaná is a fight between two forces: a centripetal force (vidyá) and a centrifugal force (avidyá). Anandamurti goes on explaining that the weapons of a sádhaka are the ten principles of morality, Yama-Niyama. With the help of jiṋána (knowledge), karma (action), and bhakti (devotion), his goal of merging in the Supreme will be attained.[1]
