Thousand-hands.

My mom sent me the link to this amazing video. It's the Thousand-Hand dance. The group that perform this dance belong to the China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe. All 21 of the dancers are completely deaf, relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage. The dance represents Guan Yin' the goddess of compassion. Guan Yin is a compassionate being who watches over and responds to, the people in the world who cry out for help.

"As long as you are kind and there is love in your heart

A thousand hands will naturally come to your aid.


As long as you are kind and there is love in your heart

You will reach out with a thousand hands to help others."


These dancers are amazing, I was so touched by the beauty of their performance that tears started pouring out my eyes. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. __________________________________________________

Mi mama me mando el link para ver este increible video. Es la danza de las Mil Manos. El grupo que lo baila pertenece al "Grupo de Artistas Discapacitados de China". Los 21 bailarines que participan en este baile son sordos. Hay cuatros profesores de danza en las esquinas del escenario que los guian utilziando lenguaje sordo-mudo. El baile representa Guan Yin' la diosa de la compasion. Guan Yin' es un ser lleno de compasion, que observa y va en ayuda de la gente en mundo que llora por ayuda.

"Siempre que seas amable y haya amor en tu corazon
mil de manos vendra en tu auxilio.
Siempre que seas amable y haya amor en tu corazon
mil manos usaras para ayudar a otros.
"

Estos bailarines son increibles. La belleza de su danza me toco el corazon y lagrimas me salieron de los ojos. Espero que disfruten de este video.
