Daruma Japanese Monk figurine/ My choice of my ICON /

Daruma (達磨?) est le nom japonais de Bodhidharma (prononciation japonaise de Dharma). Un daruma est aussi, dans la culture japonaise, une figurine à vœux. Elle porte bonheur

Les japonais , au moment du Nouvel An , achètent ces figurines et font un voeux en noircissant un des deux yeux du Daruma , Le voeux devrait se réaliser dans l'année !

J'ai essayé et ça marche .....


The Daruma doll (達磨 daruma), also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism. These dolls, though typically red and depicting a bearded man (Dharma), vary greatly in color and design depending on region and artist. Though considered an omocha, meaning toy, Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of good luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement. The doll has also been commercialized by many Buddhist temples to use alongside goal setting.
