Yellow Dzambhala is an embodiment of Ratnasambhava who is the Dhyani Buddha of equanimity. As a result, this Nepali Yellow Dzambhala statue can still make devotees wealthy but alleviation of poverty is given priority. It is the Buddhist mandate of Dzambhala to make basic necessities accessible to the less fortunate.
By alleviating extreme poverty Dzambhala will help to eliminate the defilements that it creates. This is because if people cannot meet their basic needs it can lead to crime. As a result, it is much more difficult to adhere to the Dharma path for the impoverished. Additionally, Dzambhala encourages devotees to contribute as much as possible to eliminate wealth disparity.
