Jambhala (also known as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Zambala or Jambala) is the God of wealth and appropriately a member of the jewel family (Ratna) whose Dhyani Buddha is Ratnasambhava. In Hindu mythology, it is known as Kubera.Jambhala is also considered an offshoot of the Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of Compassion.
He is the protector of all lineages and sentient beings of any disease and difficulties. Jambhala is a Bodhisattva of material and spiritual wealth as well as many other things, including the granting of financial stability.
"Because in this world there are all kinds of angry and negative emotions or evil spirits, and sometimes they harm you and other sentient beings, Dzambhala must assume such a wrathful and powerful form to protect us from these harmful spirits and negative karma. In particular, Dzambhala helps us minimize or reduce all misfortunes and obstacles and helps us to increase all good fortune and happiness. »
