Kubera is the Lord of Wealth and Guardian of the Northern Direction. According to Hindu mythology it is said that for having performed austerities for a thousand years, Bramha gave Kubera immortality and made him the God of Wealth and guardian of all earthly treasures — which he is required to distribute according to the destiny of its receivers. Kubera’s dwelling place was believed to abound in wealth and magnigicence and exist on Alaka in the Himalayas. Buddhists also worship Kubera.
