White Dzambhala is known as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig); he is born from the right eye (to be precise, the tears) of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva and is an embodiment of the perfect generosity of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the past, present, and future.

White Dzambhala is seen as a great king, sitting astride a turquoise dragon. He has one face, three rounded eyes, and two hands, holding in the right hand a cudgel (a stick of gold). A treasure-emitting mongoose that spits out precious jewels (a symbol of abundance) rests in his left hand. A trident-tipped katvanga staff rests against his left shoulder. He is wrathful in appearance with his hair, red and yellow in color, fizzing upwards like flames; adorned with jewel ornaments, a precious headdress, and silks of various colors. He rides on the back of a green dragon, sporting among the clouds. There are five Dzambhalas (i.e., Yellow (overcomes pride), White (overcomes attachment), Black (overcomes resentment), Green (overcomes jealousy), and Red (overcomes greed).

The White Dzambhala practice can create the causes and conditions which lead to the cessation of material suffering, the generation of wealth and prosperity, the relief of poverty and suffering at both the psychological and material levels, and the development of the compassionate mind. White Dzambhala helps dharma practitioners to have a stable life and be free from worries while practicing dharma. We do the practice with the wish that all beings be relieved of all suffering of poverty, hunger, and thirst and that all their needs be fulfilled.

Accordingly, this practice encourages good fortune for our sangha as well as all individual Dharma practitioners, in order to accomplish greater generosity and all virtuous aims.
