Our Yellow Jambhala sculpture is an embodiment of one of the Dhyani Buddhas named Ratnasambhava. Additionally, Yellow Jambhala is the most popular of the 5 variations of Jambhala. Having originated from the Hindu God Kubera, the Jamblalas are sought after by devotees seeking wealth. However, the Buddhist Jambhala is associated with the wholesome attribute of equanimity. As such, he is pursuing the elimination of poverty through wealth creation.
All of the Jambhalas, including this Yellow Jambhala sculpture represent the Dharmapala who are the protectors of the Dharma. Additionally, Yellow Jambhala was personally invited to become a Dharmapala by Gautama Buddha himself. This was in show of gratitude for protecting the Buddha as he gave a sermon.
Our Nepali artisan created this Yellow Jambhala sculpture with the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer we can embellish the crown and jewels of the sculpture with turquoise and red coral stones. Your new sculpture will wear them well and also inspire all those who see it.
Gold Yellow Jambhala Sculpture for Wealth Creation
Our Jambhala statue is hand face painted in intricate detail. Indeed, for a small sculpture, the carving is extremely well detailed and reflective of the lost wax sculpting method. The finish is applied using the fire gilding method and leaves behind a spectacular 24k gold finish.
A prominent feature of our Yellow Jambhala sculpture is his mongoose Nehulay who is always perched on his left forearm. Nehulay is a metaphor for Jambhala’s mastery over the serpents (nagas). Additionally, Nehulay is always spitting forth precious jewels to help alleviate the pains of poverty.
Furthermore, Jambhala has a bowl of medicinal fruits called “bijapuraka” near his left foot. His left foot is pulled in and his right leg is partially extended in panhandle position. This is because he is always ready to come to the assistance of devotees. Click here to learn more about the five Jambhalas.
