Lord Kubera is the ‘treasurer of the gods’ and ‘king of Yaksha’. He is a true representation of wealth, prosperity and glory. Lord Kubera not only distributes, but also maintains and guards all the treasures of this universe. Hence, he is also known as guardian of wealth.
Lord Kubera comes from family tress of Lord Brahma. He is the son of Vishrava and Illavida. Vishrava also married the demon princess Kaikesi, who mothered four children: Ravana, Kumbhakarna, Vibhishana and Surpanakha. So Lord Kubera is also the half-brother of Ravana.
