The Thousand-hand Guanyin

Mood: "I am a friking God."

I saw that on someone's t-shirt last night and thought it was an interesting paraphrase of Nietzsche's "God is dead." Could you imagine the adrenalin rush he had when he wrote that?

Anyway, I have a feeling that this is going to be another entry of non sequitur.

Have you heard of the story of the "Thousand-hand Guanyin", the Goddess of Mercy? The great number of hands she has represents her ability to help and heal people. Moreoever, there is an eye on each hand so she knows who needs help.

There is something very erotic about a deity that has such slender fingers and so many of them.
