A recently unearthed video from Hillsong Sweden shows their 2018 Christmas service extravaganza featured a dance routine on the stage that is traditionally done to honor the Buddhist deity Kuan Shi Yin, incorporating the “dance of a thousand hands” into a service designed to worship Christ.
For reference, Kuan Shi Yin, also known as some variation of Guan Yin, Guan Yim, Kuan Yim, or Kuan Yin, is the Goddess of Compassion, Mercy, and Kindness. According to legend, she vowed to never rest until she saved all unhappy beings. Realizing that she could not do it as she was, the Buddha gave her multiple heads and arms in order to help so many. She is frequently depicted with varying degrees of arms and heads, but always sitting on a lotus flower while wearing a headdress of some kind.
Naturally, this led the church, led by senior pastors Andreas and Lina Nielsen to incorporate this bizarre dance routine into their Christmas service, performed by members of Hillsong in an act of pure show and pageantry.
After a performance by the children’s choir, one of the men observing is asked why he is so grumpy, and telling him he needs to get down with the kids, promising him to “show him some moves.” This transition to an Asian-inspired version of Drake’s In My Feelings (Kiki do you love me?) song, cleaned up to not include the copious amount of f-bombs, n-bombs, and sexually explicit language this song features. (Again, why?)
While the troupe dances, you’ll notice that they have the same hand and finger positioning as the goddess, as depicted in the portraits, statues, and graven images of her. There is also a large lotus featured prominently in the background screen, the same as Kuan Shi Yin.
All happening in front of the entire congregation.
Hillsong has put on a lot of awful productions in their time. There was the insane one we just featured, the one depicting Jesus born in a riotous bar, (since deleted), Hillsong’s sensuality Christmas show with fleshly dancers, the Hillsong show with women writhing in nothing but towels, and their infamous ‘Silent Night Sleazy Night’ Christmas special from several years ago (also since deleted).
In terms of pure blasphemy, this puts all those to shame. To see a typical dance of a thousand hands, click here.
