The recitation of a thousand names or epithets of a deity is an ancient Indian tradition: an awareness of the perennial possibilities of the spiritual horizon. Here the illuminated mind is thousand folded into ever higher intuition of the infinity of the transcendent Universal. The thousand epithets of the Buddha underwent an apotheosis as the Thousand Buddhas and they became a thousand pictures or a thousand icons, in variations of fives or sixes.
