Bodhi Dharma Action Figure



Well now I have seen everything, and I am not sure about all the poses they show as none of them have in a seated meditation pose and not sure if he can actually sit that way. Too bad they didn't have and cushion accessories or perhaps even the Laṅkāvatāra Sūtra. Anyway, here is what they say about it. 

LEGENDS: BODHI DHARMA 12 INCH COLLECTIBLE FIGURE

While many legends exist, few can dispute that Bodhi Dharma is the founder of Zen Buddhism in China and Japan. The son of a wealthy Brahman king of Southern India, Dharma traveled east to Southern China to preach the teachings of zen. He eventually crossed the Yangtze River and continued north until he arrived at a small monastery called the Shaolin Temple.

Monks at the Shaolin Temple were peaceful and did not practice martial arts. Dharma’s emphasis on self-enlightenment and strength introduced radical preset forms of martial arts to the monastery. Hailed as the father of the Han Shaolin Fist, Bodhi Dharma has been long recognized as one of the most significant influences in Chinese martial arts as we know – establishing the Shaolin Temple as the revered martial arts epicenter of the world.

Triad Toys is proud to debut the much anticipated Legends line with Bodhi Dharma. The Legends series is Triad’s unique take on mythical and legendary heroes. This product line is one of our longest running passion projects that we want to see produced. Every character is envisioned with the same style and quality you’ve come to love about Triad Toys. No detail is left out of this figure – his clothes are meticulously designed with multiple layers and choice fabrics, he comes with four (4) pairs of hands for all the kung-fu poses you can possibly imagine, his headsculpt is wildly imaginative and hand-painted to perfection, his weapon utilizes the ATAC system and converts into five different weapons! To guarantee the highest level of detail and collectability, Dharma is a limited production of only 400 pieces worldwide!

Well I guess that is what happens when two traditions share the same Icon. Preorder yours today at Triad Toys.

I think these are re-packaged, factory-reject Mr. T Action Figures with the missing mohawk.

To all the Tamilans,

The only reason Tamils didn't know this legendary figure was because the Bramin-Hindus suppressed his history from the start. He dumped Hinduism to follow the footsteps of Buddah, which the Hindus saw this as a desecration of Hinduism at large by a Prince. You all learned about this wonderful person after watching a movie, but none of you in India ever practice this magnificent art.

I am tamil, but sick of stupid 'i am proud to be tamil because of Bodidarma' posts below me. WTF ? The action figures look like Mr T.Haha. But Bodhidarma was a kick ass monk from TN,India who spread martial arts and Che to Sholin temple in China.

WTF so many i am proud to be tamizan bull crap, he left us and then we did not recognize him. he then went to china and spread his wisdom, the wise people there saw his value and followed his methods. So i dont think we indians need to be so happy about this, learn from it. Religious freedoms and tolerance is paramount.
