Daruma 达摩

Daruma doll coin banks are translated as "Genie" from Japanese Kanji. The Daruma Doll can grant its' owner one wish which should be made with a very specific phrase. The Daruma Doll is also a symbol of perseverance and determination, a symbol of remembrance of legendary monk Bodhidharma. In modern times the owner can make a wish by writing on a piece of paper and inserting it into the coin bank slot. Once the wish has been fulfilled by the Daruma Doll, it is customary to release the bond between it and the owner by removing the written paper or to obtain another Daruma Doll should the owner choose to make another wish.
