Manifesting Prosperity: A Guide to the 5 Dzambhalas Practice

Who is the Wealth Deity Dzambhala

The Wealth deity in Buddhist mythology and the protector of the north is Dzambhala or Jambhala, a member of the Jewel family. In Hindu mythology, Dzambala is known as Kuber. He is also believed to be an emanation of Avalokiteshwor (Chenrezig), or the Buddha of Compassion, manifesting as the wealth-giving Buddha.

Five distinct wealth Jambalas exist. Every Jambala has its own chant and ritual that it uses to combat poverty and establish financial security.
Dzam means "assembly" or "deity." "Gold or wealth," Bhah, which means "to honor," is the sense of the word "la." Dzambhala means "precious golden deity who gathers or distributes spirituality or Dharma with material stability or accomplishment to our circumstances."

The Buddhist wealth deity Jambhala has several manifestations; there are at least twelve of them in the Sarma traditions alone, without counting the numerous figures from the "Revealed Treasure" tradition found in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism.
