This is a classic Zen Daruma with a good inscription. The Second Patriarch (Eka) stood in the snow for ages seeking Daruma's teachings, going so far as to cut off his arm and offer it to the Patriarch. When Daruma finally let him in his cave, Eka asked, "Please pacify my mind." Daruma said, "Bring me your mind and I will pacify it." Eka replied, "I have searched for my mind, and cannot find it anywhere." Daruma told him "See, your mind is pacified." (Case 41 of the Mumonkan.) One's mind is the same as the Buddha-mind found everywhere, in the wind, flowers, snow, and moon.
Although Tokai Itten, a Soto Zen abbot, lived in remote Hokkaido, he had many followers all over the country, including one Japanese prime minister. Itten was known for his distinctive portraits of Daruma.
