This antiquated Yellow Dzambhala statue is an embodiment of one of the Dhyana Buddhas – Ratnasambhava. As a result, Dzambhala has the Buddhist mandate for wealth equality and the elimination of poverty. Additionally, he wishes to alleviate the suffering of the disadvantaged so they are less compelled to engage in desperate measures. Dzambhala is also a Dharmapala, which is a protector of the Dharma. Indeed, Dzambhala was personally chosen as a Dharmapala by the Buddha himself.
Features of our Antiquated Yellow Dzambhala Statue
Features of our antiquated Yellow Dzambhala statue include his mongoose Nehulay perched on his left forearm. Nehulay is always spitting forth precious jewels and also represents Yellow Dzambhala’s subjugation of the Nagas. Furthermore, the right hand of Yellow Dzambhala is displaying the Varada “gift giving” mudra. Additionally, he holds the “cintamani” wish fulfilling jewel in the palm of the same hand. The cintamani jewel has special powers that will grant devotees anything they ask for. His right leg sits in panhandle partially extended and his left leg is drawn in. As a result, he is always ready to come to the assistance of sentient life. Additionally, Yellow Dzambhala sits on a single lotus pedestal and wears the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva.
