Bunnidharma's History


Bunnidharma was a simple potter until he was found by Master Oogway, who gave him an important assignment: to create the Spirit Urn, meant to trap the soul of the corrupted Dragon Master Jindiao.

Unfortunately, Bunnidharma fell asleep after finishing his crafting work, and did not awake in time to get the urn to the Constellations. As a result, the Constellations perished, and Jindiao's spirit was cast from his body but left free to continue his evil scheming.

Filled with shame for his failure, Bunnidharma secreted himself away in a cave, where he used the Spirit Urn as an ordinary container.

The Paws of Destiny

After a thousand years, the urn was rediscovered after Po was brought to the cave following his nearly fatal encounter with Jindiao. Bunnidharma admitted his failings, and Po convinced him‚??after some argument‚??to try and atone for his past mistakes by helping to stop Jindiao in the present. However, Bunnidharma lacked the knowledge of how to use the Spirit Urn, and so helped Po and his students‚??the new Four Constellations‚??to enter the Spirit Realm.

Fearing Jindiao would attempt to stop them, Bunnidharma arranged with Po to hide the Spirit Urn in Po's baggage while he carried a powerless duplicate. This proved extremely useful, as Jindiao destroyed the fake, believing to be unstoppable now. He then cast Bunnidharma away in shame, ready to kill Po. At the last second, Bunnidharma rushed back in, sacrificing himself to save the panda's life. He declared his purpose completed, as he disintegrated into particles in a similar fashion as Master Oogway.
