Guanyin and the Thousand Arms

The internet is one endless expanse of ready-to-be-consumed information, some we couldn't care less about and some like the video below, lends a little reassurance to our faltering sense of self.

Steeped in mythology and lore, the story behind this highly orchestrated dance (condensed into one sentence) goes that Guanyin,
the East Asian goddess of mercy and compassion, tried to 'reach out', help and guide earthly beings but couldn't because of her limitations, so Amitabha Buddha endowed her with a thousand arms to amply support her followers. Food for thought ay.
