Kuvera is one of the most popular deities of Nepalese Buddhists because of his bestower of wealth character. Kuvera is generally represented as the lord of wealth and guardian of the northern direction. Kuvera is deep yellow in colour and holds in his two hands a goad and a gada (mace). Sometimes he is represented sitting on a lion with a green mane, holding a banner of victory
in the right hand and carrying the mongoose who vomits a wish fulfilling gem.

Kuvera’s abode is said to be Alaka in the Himalayas, enriched with wealth and abundance. Kuvera is always surrounded with yaksha generals and Kinnars. He may have sometimes a third eye also. In the Durgatiparisodhana Tantra, it is stated, Kubera the great king of the Yakshas, bowed before the Lord Shakyamuni Buddha and said: O Lord, I together with eighty eight great war generals of the Yakshas, will persevere in removing every fear of that great being who holds this tantra. I will give wealth and grain in abundance. I will protect his country and provinces, his people, servants, relatives, friends, sons, daughters wives and the rest. I will take care of his oxen, cows, asses, camels, sheep, elephants, goats and the rest.

Kuvera is thus especially invoked for generating wealth and prosperity. ere are many legends relating to his role as guardian of all the treasures of the earth and the treasures belonging to the people. Kuvera is worshipped both by the Hindus and Buddhists alike.
