Kids Encyclopedia Facts

In the Buddhist religion, Jambhala is the wealth-giving form of AvalokiteĊ›vara or Chenrezig, the bodhisattva of compassion.

Jambhala's blessings are to help others by eliminating poverty, so that they may practice the Dharma. There are five Jambhalas - Yellow Jambhala (overcomes pride), White Jambhala (overcomes attachment), Black Jambala (overcomes resentment), Green Jambhala (overcomes jealousy) and Red Jambhala (overcomes greed). For instance, the White Jambhala is shown sitting on a turquoise dragon and his left hand holds a mongoose that has many precious jewels.
