A Daruma is a Japanese traditional doll, created to emulate Bodhidharma (Zen Buddhism founder) and making it a talisman of good luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are round, hollow, and bearded. Both eyes are usually blank. Daruma are regarded as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, and a good gift of encouragement.
A Daruma doll's eyes are both blank/white. If you receive a Daruma, the idea is to set a goal or wish, then paint in Daruma's left eye. Once the desired goal is met, fill in his right eye.
