Inspired by a Buddhist monk, Bodhidharma, the daruma is a traditional Japanese talisman. This talisman is a reminder of one's own life goals. The Daruma represents good luck, support, and self-perseverance, a reminder of staying the path.
While visualizing a promise or goal, the owner paints in the left eye. Once the goal is accomplished, the right eye is filled in, giving the Daruma his 'vision' back as a gesture of gratitude for helping achieve the goal.
With this mini daruma charm, you can use a thin permanent marker to fill in the eyes...
