Daruma is modeled after Bodhidharma who was a founder of Zen Buddhism.
It was originally used as a amulet against children's plague since Edo Period (400 years ago) in Japan.
Now it is traditionally familiar to Japanese as a talisman for huge harvest, good business and good luck.
Besides, dharma embodies perseverance.
That has a round shape. Whenever roll it, it can stand up straight away.
We say it as ‘NANA-KOROBI YA-OKI’.
It means tumbling seven times, standing up eight times -even if there are a lot of troubles, never give up and just keep trying.
