Undoubtedly, Asia for the West often remains a secret behind seven seals. Ancient culture, traditions, customs, dances simply fascinate tourists who were lucky enough to see them firsthand. One of these beautiful and unusual treasures of Eastern culture is undoubtedly the dance of the Thousand-Faced Guan Yin performed by deaf Chinese girls.
Guan Yin is a bodhisattva of compassion that Buddhists regard as a Goddess of Mercy. Her name is short for Guan Shi Yin. Guan means “observe, watch”, Shi means “world”, Yin means” sounds”, in particular the sounds of those who suffer.
Thus, Guan Yin is a compassionate being who watches the world and reacts to people calling for help. Bodhi means “wisdom” or ” enlightenment”. Sattva means “being” or ” being”.
