Dzambhala is a deity of wealth whose blessings remove the obstacle of poverty, bringing wealth and abundance to Dharma practitioners. As it is difficult to attain spiritual realizations while afflicted by lack of resources, Dzambhala generates prosperity so that practitioners have the time, energy, and means to practice and attain enlightenment.
