Description
Bronze Treasure-emitting mongoose; Buddhist Sanskrit texts offer explanation for the mongoose’s association with wealth. This seems to be the reason why in Jambhala’s iconography the mongoose is always shown vomiting jewels. The mongoose that Jambhala holds does not represent the actual creature but acts as a metaphor for his generosity. One could place a jewel regurgitating mongoose in the wealth corner to activate the chi of wealth & abundance. - (AY.1)
