Talking about Intuitive connections through the connected Mind-Field. I had just finished listening to a McKinsey piece - conversations with Dr. Tarun Khanna of Harvard University on the complimentary relationship between Chinese and Indian Cultures and the impact this has on business connections between the two countries:http://www.mckinseyquarterly.com/China_and_India_the_power_of_complementary_cultures_2290#khannaInteractive: Tarun Khanna on the complementary cultures of China and IndiaIn it, Dr. Tarun Khanna speaks forcefully of the ancient connections being revived by present day interactions of the type some of us were witness to in the 2005 trip led by a very senior monk of the Indian Swami Order -Swami Veda Bharati - to the Buddhist temples and shrines in the vast hinterland of China which to this day preserve and honour the ancient connections between China and India seeped in pure Samkhya (one of the 10 Schools of ancient Indian Philosophy and the oldest one known to man) and early Upanishads.I set out to reminisce on the following links to that 2005 Quiet Spirit of Enquiry , a journey to the Dunhuang caves at the edge of the Gobi Desert to the 2500 year old hill-top Taoist monastries in the Shaanxi province where Lao Tze taught Dao De Jing in 560 BC:http://www.swamivedabharati.org/Writing/Diving%20Into%20Harmony.pdfhttp://www.redroom.com/articlestory/of-my-ancient-indian-roots-modern-chinaBefore I had a chance to open the above links, my Inbox came alive with the following message from Swami Veda (a.k.a SVB) with a link to the awesome dance by 21 deaf Chinese artists paying a tribute to the universal Mother principle - 1000 armed Guanyin the compassionate Boddhsattwa Avalokiteshwara, Dolma of Tibet, Isis, Madonna, Laxmi and the 1000 armed Kali.Subject: Fw: Thousand-Hand Guanyin.
Do share around --- svbThis is an awesome dance, called the Thousand armed Guaynyin. Considering the tight coordination required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing, even if they were not all deaf . Yes, all 21 of the dancers are deaf. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dances deliver a visual spectacle that is both intricate and stirring. Its first major international debut was in Athens last year at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics. But it had long been in the repertoire of the Chinese Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe and has traveled to more than 40 countries. Its lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a
BA from the Hubei Fine Arts Institute. The video was recorded in Beijing during the Spring Festival celebrations this year.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgHmSdpjEIk
