The Mythical Importance
To understand how Lord Kubera can invoke positive energies and disappear your financial instability, let us first understand who he is and why is he associated with money and prosperity.
In Indian mythology, Lord Kubera has been perceived differently in different eras. In the Vedic texts, for instance, he is shown to be a Yaksha (demon) who was a wealthy king.
He built the golden city of Lanka in the southern sea. It is believed that he used to travel in Pushapaka Vimana, a flying palatial vehicle.
However, his half-brother Ravana ousted him and captured all his wealth. Kubera thus, left Lanka and finally settled in Alakapuri near Kailash mountain. The city was created by Vishwakarma and was splendid and opulent beyond imagination.
As we move to other ancient texts, especially Ramayana and Mahabharata, Kubera is shown to be the God of riches and the wealthiest Deva.
According to one some mythological beliefs, Kubera was also Lord Brahma’s grandson.
He deserted his father Vishrava and went to live with his grandfather. Pleased with this, Lord Brahma conferred him with immortality and also gave him the all the riches of the world (Nidhis). It was also Lord Brahma who awarded him Pushpaka Vimana.
Other than Hindu mythologies, Lord Kubera is also featured in the Jain and Buddhist mythologies.
In Buddhism, he is one of the four heavenly kings associated with cardinal directions, and is known as Vaiśravaṇa.
On the other hand, in Jainism, Kubera is the attendant Yaksha of the 19th Tirthankar Mallinath. He is called Sarvanubhuti or Sarvahna.
There are also various temples and festivals dedicated to Lord Kubera. In India, he is often worshipped with Goddess Lakshmi for wealth and success, especially during Dhanteras and Diwali.
It is believed that those who chant his mantra ‘Oṃ Shaṃ Kuberāya Namaḥ’ 108 times are blessed with wealth and financial success.
Lord Kubera Idol At Home
Usually, people place idols such as Laughing Buddha to attract positive vibes and financial stability in home. While that is suitable as per Feng Shui, it might not give as effective results as a Lord Kubera idol.
One more reason why people often use Laughing Buddha is the similarity between the two. Lord Kubera and Laughing Buddha both bear physical similarities along with the prosperity linked with them.
But if you study their symbols properly, you would realize that Laughing Buddha symbolizes happiness and health while Lord Kubera symbolizes wealth and prosperity.
Thus, if you wish to attract money and financial success, having Lord Kubera idol at home and office is recommended.
The power of this Lord Kubera can be further enhanced by proper installation of the idol through chanting. This will energize the idol and offer your multifold benefits. The placement direction of the idol also matters. Thus, it is advised to take help of an expert for this process.
