Ganesha is worshipped as lord of wisdom, success, patron of arts and sciences, beginnings and as the lord of defender.

All of us know that Ganesha has elephant head with only one tusk, fat and has big belly, his mount is rat (mooshika) and many more. Have you ever think what is the meaning of the these symbols? Many of us don't know what is the meaning of all this things. So Lets see the pictures below

Kuvera (Jambhala) in Hindu mythology

posted on 09 Mar 2009 15:42 by dzibeads in Dharma
We already read many post about the God of wealth, Jambhala or(Dzambhala). Hindu Tradition regarded Jambhala as Kuvera. Today I will Share some information of Kuvera, his mantra and some of his statues, which is just arrived in our Gallery.
Buddhist Jambhala Buddhist JambhalaKuvera is hindu form of the God of Wealth, Jambala or(Dzambhala). Kuvera is one of the most popular deities of Buddhists and Hindu tradition because of his bestower of wealth character. He is generally represented as the lord of wealth and guardian of the northern direction. According to Hindu mythology he is said to have performed austerities for a thousand years, in regards for which Brahma, the Creator, gave him immortality and made him the God of wealth, guardian of all the treasures of the earth which Kuvera has to distribute according to the destiny of the receivers. Kubera's dwelling place was said to be on Alaka in the Himalaya, abounding in wealth and magnificent. He is always surrounded with yaksha generals and Kinnars. He may have sometimes a third eye also.

Just Arrived Kuver Statues

Kuvera usually sits in Lalitashana (lotus asana). Like Jambhala , he carries a wish fulfilling gem in right hand to signify that if we follow his practice, we can “bear the fruits” of our efforts to gain spiritual attainments and enlightenment and left hand hold mongoose that vomits jewels, and both work to attract us to practice Kuvera (Dzambala) with an immediate promise of wealth.

His form is short, fat and strong, which comes from a time when it was widely believed that obesity is synonymous with wealth and luxury. His face carries an arrogant expression and sits in royal posture. This acts as a warning to tell us if we continue to look and act in this arrogant way in our attempts to get material wealth, we actually gain poverty instead. So Think! Is our greed hurting others?

The royal ease of his form indicates that Kuvera (Dzambala) is free from samsara – through his practice and attainments, he has also acquired all the money, fame and wealth of the universe and no longer experiences suffering. He can afford to be laid back, chilled out – he got everything that he needs! He shows us how our practice to him can ultimately lead us to enlightenment, where we too can literally have everything we want. At the same time, he steps on a conch shell with his right foot to mean that though he has attained all this great wealth, he is above it and will no longer allow the ties of samsara to subjugate him again.
Kubera also known as VaisravanaIn Nepalese Buddhist tradition Kubera also known as Vaisravana, he is represented sitting on a lion with a green mane, holding a banner of victory in the right hand and carrying the mongoose who vomits a wish fulfilling gem. He is chief of the Four Heavenly Kings and an important figure in Hindu and Buddhist mythology.
It's believe worshipping Kubera on a regular basis brings about a distinct change in one’s prosperity and luck though, of course, effort remains paramount. Kubera blesses the worshipper with money and prosperity by drawing new avenues and sources of income and wealth. It helps increase the flow of funds and the ability to accumulate wealth.
Kuvera has his Own Mantra

"Om Sham Kuberāya Namah"
or
"Om Yakshaya Kuberaya Vaishravanaya, Dhan Dhanyadhipataye, Dhan Dhanya Srimdhim mein Dapya Dapya Swaha

Kuver is also worship in Thailand, as ท้าวกุเวร or ท้าวเวสสุวรรณ (Thao Kuwen or Thao Vessuwan)
