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

Thousand-hand Bodhisattva dance

Bodhisattva dance troupe was formed in 1987. Thousand-hand Bodhisattva dance is performed by 21 hearing impaired girls and boys. The Bodhisattva is called Avalokiteshvara who represents infinite compassion, thousand arms being symbolic of the help and aid.

Guan Yin is the Bodhisattva of compassion, revered by Buddhists as the Goddess of Mercy. Her name is short for Guan Shi Yin. Guan means to observe, watch, or monitor; Shi means the world; Yin means sounds, specifically sounds of those who suffer. Thus, Guan Yin is a compassionate being who watches for, and responds to, the people in the world who cry out for help.
