Brief Introduction to the God of Wealth

The God of Wealth is the deity in Chinese Taoism and folk beliefs who is in charge of the world's wealth and also plays a significant role in Chinese culture. Many people set up a position for the God of Wealth in their homes to worship him, hoping it will bring them wealth and good luck. During important festivals such as the Spring Festival, every household will hold a grand worship ceremony, praying for prosperity and good fortune in financial matters in the new year.

In addition, Buddhism also has its God of Wealth who brings people money and wealth. In Buddhism, poverty is not a misfortune, and wealth doesn’t mean happiness. The most important is looking for inner peace and having inner satisfaction, abiding by ethics and justice, as well as pursuing wisdom and love. However in Taoist tradition, the God of Wealth is perceived as an impartial judge and a deity who fairly distributes wealth, and is often depicted as a rich man holding various treasures.

Common Types of God of Wealth

Yellow Jambhala

Yellow Jambhala is a deity in Tibetan Buddhism and is also the head of the Five Colored Gods of Wealth, who is usually perceived as a symbol of wealth and good luck.

Worshiping Yellow Jambhala helps be blessed with good fortune, increase wealth and wisdom, bring good luck, and avoid poverty as well as all kinds of economic difficulties. The meaning of the Yellow Jambhala is not only the acquisition of material wealth, but also the pursuit of wisdom and love, and the power to overcome poverty and obstacles.

Place It at the Entrance

When placing the God of Wealth in home, it is suggested to place it near the door, which means bringing wealth and luck to your house the moment that you open the door.

The Civil God of Wealth should be placed facing inward, while the Military God of Wealth should be placed facing outward.

Do Not Place It Together with Ancestors’ Memorial Tablets
