Thousand Hand Bodhisattavi



I found "Thousand Hand Bodhisattavi" via Blue Tea. It engages the heart and dazzles the eye. "The Thousand-hand Bodhisattva dance. It's performed by 21 deaf girls and boys from China's Disabled Peoples Performing Art Troupe. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring."

What a stunning show! It really made me think about what it must feel like for them to express rhythm without being able to hear the music! Wonderful.
I too enjoy Blue Tea's site. She has a fantastic graphic-visual sense.

And thank you so much for the wonderful comments on NOW. It feels really good to know you are reading and enjoying there.

Yes, I've been too obsessed with the internet lately. I've got to tone down my fascination to those things that are going to help me help myself. I'm really trying to break old habits of not listening to my inner voice and paying attention to my needs for health and serenity. It's good to know I'm not alone in my wandering. Thank you Princess Haiku.

Sincerely,
Camille

I am speechless...thanks for sharing this. I found your blog by chance and I will immediately add it to my blogroll and will be checking often for sure! Poetry, dance, magenta flowers, beautiful statues...a lot of my favourites too! I'd love that you visit my blog too.
Today I will be touched by inspiration just because I saw this dance! Thanks again!
