Dance for Peace

There is an awesome dance, called the Thousand-Hand Quan Yin, which is making the rounds across the net. Considering the tight coordination required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing. All 21 of the dancers are deaf and mute.

Quan Yin, as a true Enlightened One, or Bodhisattva, vowed to remain in the earthly realms and not enter the heavenly worlds until all other living things have completed their own enlightenment and thus become liberated from the pain-filled cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
There are numerous legends that recount the miracles which Quan Yin performs to help those who call on Her. Like Artemis, She is a virgin Goddess who protects women, offers them a religious life as an alternative to marriage, and grants children to those
who desire them.
