Gestures and Attributes
There are five Jambhalas - yellow, white, black, green and red - of which yellow is the most common form. Each form has its own special significance and attributes. Yellow Zambhala is depicted adorned with a crown, silk garments, and beautiful gold and jeweled ornaments. He is seated imperially upon a throne, with a bijapuraka (citron) fruit in his right hand and a mongoose in his left hand. The mongoose constantly spews forth precious jewels and treasures, and represents Jambhala's victory over the nagas.
Mantra of Yellow Zambala "Om Jambhala Jalendraye Svaha"
Protecting the Face
As the face is painted it is highly recommended that the face of the statue is to be greatly taken care of as it requires a very professional and skilled face artist to repair the face of dirt and damages. Commonly to protect it from damage the statue with painted face is placed under a glass box and it is always covered with a cotton face mask if it has to be moved.
