Traditional Daruma dolls are usually handmade with cardboard, they were modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen tradition of Buddhism, there was myth that the Bodhidharma angrily cut his eyelids once he fell asleep while he was practicing the nine-year meditation, to prevent himself from falling asleep again. And after that nine-year-without moving-period, his legs and arms fell off from Atrophy. Jesus! Alright, no doubt it became a symbol of perseverance. It’s also a symbol of good luck and especially given to students as a gift to help they aim the good results in their studies or important exams. The dolls would be bought from local temples in the new year days, with their both eyes are usually oversize white blank when sold, the recipient will fulfill an eyes of the doll upon setting the goal, they’ll recall the goal every time they see the doll with the one-eye-opened, and when they finish their big task, the other eye will be fulfilled and gathered to burn in the next new year in their local temples when the goals were completed. But you don’t need to cut your eyelids, our dear pupils, you can ask for a break if you’re so tired from studying, Just! Don’t cut your eyelids, OK?
