As practicitioners of liquid and digits, seeing this video for the first time does nothing but make us wonder what could be possible with so many hands! This video is just simply breathtaking. Behind the amazing precision and beauty exists one single amazing fact. All 63 performers are deaf and are part of hte China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe. As you watch this, try to really think about the dedication this group has and committment to achiving something so phenomenal to the eye.

From the Video: "This dance described the legend that Bodhisattva Guan Yin has one thousand hands. Bodhisattva is a Proto-Buddha. She can not become a Buddha because she is still attached to this world. Her vow: If there is still a single drop of tear in this world, I will not become a Buddha."
