After entering [[Sage Mode]], Hashirama creates a wooden statue of titanic proportions, easily able to dwarf a tailed beast. Thousands of hands originate from the statue's back in countless concentric rows, while its two main hands are clasped, as if in prayer. The statue can serve a variety of purposes in battle from fighting on Hashirama's behalf, to defending and even using [[Top Transformed Buddha|other techniques]] with it. The sheer size of this technique makes it almost impossible to attack Hashirama.

The True Several Thousand Hands is a technique which creates a titanic, many-handed wooden statue that can be freely controlled by the user.

Usage

There have been two distinct uses of this technique: one which creates a statue which easily dwarfed even the tailed beast, and another smaller scale once which was nonetheless comparably formidable.

Hashirama Senju

After entering Sage Mode, Hashirama creates a wooden statue of titanic proportions, easily able to dwarf a tailed beast. Thousands of hands originate from the statue's back in countless concentric rows, while its two main hands are clasped, as if in prayer. The statue can serve a variety of purposes in battle from fighting on Hashirama's behalf, to defending and even using other techniques with it. The sheer size of this technique makes it almost impossible to attack Hashirama.

Yamato & Guruguru

Guruguru, while using Yamato as a medium, used another version of the statue — albeit smaller — that demonstrated the ability to use the five basic chakra natures from the small heads encircling the main head of the statue.[1] Each of these five heads used a different nature simultaneously against Allied Shinobi forces but were countered by Third Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi.

Influence

This technique seems to be influenced by the Buddhist bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteśvara, also known as "Senju Kannon" (千手観音, Literally meaning: Thousand-Armed Kannon).

One prominent story tells of Kannon vowing never to rest until he had freed all beings from Saṃsāra. After strenuous effort, but struggling to comprehend the needs of so many who still had yet to be saved, his head splits into eleven pieces. The Buddha Amida, seeing his plight, gives him eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering. Upon hearing and comprehending these cries, Kannon attempted to reach out to all those who needed aid, but found that his two arms shattered into pieces. Once more, Amida comes to his aid and grants him a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering.
