This is a beautiful, hand-drawn illustration, exclusively offered by Sacred Surreal. Lamp Transmission, also known as Dharma Transmission, is a central concept in Zen Buddhism. It refers to the direct transmission of spiritual teachings and wisdom from a Zen master to a disciple. The image of a lamp being passed from one person to another symbolizes the transfer of spiritual knowledge and understanding.
We see a cartoon version of Bodhidharma, also known as Daruma, who is considered to be the first Zen master to travel to China. He is reknown for his legendary seven-year period of silent meditation in front of a wall, during which he is said to have attained enlightenment. The Japanese words on the shirt, "First Zen Patriarch, Bodhidharma," serve as a reminder of his significance as the founder of Zen Buddhism in China. When asked about the highest truth, Bodhidharma famously replied, "Vast emptiness, no holiness," indicating that true understanding cannot be expressed in words or concepts.
