      This scroll was drawn in June of 1925.

      Daruma (Bodhidharma) was drawn artistically by Sengetsu, chief priest of the Ginkaku-Ji (Jisho-Ji) Temple.
      The San Kanji writing at the top was done by Hohkoh, Zen Buddhistic master priest of the Kinkaku-Ji (Rokuon-Ji) Temple.
      The Ginkaku-Ji and Kinkaku-Ji are most famous temples in Japan.
      The both were founded in Kyoto by Ashikaga Shoguns in the Muromachi period.
      Bodhidharma is regarded as the patriarch of Zen Buddhism in China.
      He is said to have come from India and lived in a cave nearby the Shaolin Temple where he faced a wall in meditation for nine years.
