Bodhi Dharma Action Figure

Zen Mirror: Bodhi Dharma Action Figure

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. 


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!
