Hero / Not a hero
On the other hand, Lance Armstrong is not a hero because, despite admitting to doping "because everyone does it", he refuses to admit to cheating.
After listening to people discussing whether Lance Armstrong is a hero, I decided to look at my hero, the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is a hero because he has superpowers. I kid you not: When you meditate as much as he does, you might get siddhis, which are mind powers arising due to practice.
Does Lance have any of these? No, nothing, just extra stamina & leg strength. Overall, Armstrong is no hero because he cheated. As well, his ego is so big, it's gone "cancerous." This guy needs to go see the Dalai Lama and talk to him about this hero business and develop humility.
