Definition of Bayani

Most people conceive the idea of a hero as a person who after their death has been recognized by a nation. The Oxford dictionary defines a hero as “a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities” (Oxford Dictionary, 2007). It would be easier to define the word Bayani to the English translation of hero, but to the Filipino people, it has more elements. First, Bayani is not gender specific.  Second, the definition of Bayani, in a Filipino traditional sense, is an unselfish act towards the human race; a person with extraordinary courage or bravery that ignores extreme danger and exhibits strength to overcome difficulties. Lastly, a Bayani never concern their own personal pleasure nor do they expect compensation for what they do, rather their actions are done out of kindness. In other words, a Bayani is one that humbly recognizes the interest of what is bigger that the individual, like the group, the community, the nation, humanity and the environment. The need to improve the state of humanity is instinctive and habitual.
