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. How to use: When buying a Daruma, its eyes come empty. You must then make a wish and paint one of the Daruma's eye (left or right). When your wish is realised, you can then paint the second eye as a sign of accomplishment.           Daruma come in various sizes: Daruma dolls come in various colours: This is what they mean: Black: Chasing away evil and a successful year Blue: Personal achievement and success Gold: Wealth Green: Good health and vitality Orange: Success in school Pink: Blessing in love, marriage and giving birth Purple: Advancement in career Red: Safety and success in every way White: New birth and best wishes Yellow: Security and protection
