Significance of Lord KUBERA and performing lord KUBERA pooja

Kubera (also Kuvera or Kuber) is the king of the Yakshas and the lord of wealth in Hindu mythology. He is also known as Dhanapati, the lord of riches. He is one of the Guardians of the directions, representing the Uttara-disha( meaning north of 4 directions in Sanskrit.)
 
Kubera is also the son of Sage Vishrava (hence he is also called Vaisravana) and in this respect, he is also the elder brother of the Lord of Lanka, Ravana. He is said to have performed austerities for  thousand years, in reward for which Brahma, the Creator, gave him immortality and made him god of wealth, guardian of all the treasures of the earth, the nidhi which he was to give out to whom they were destined.
 
When Brahma appointed him God of Riches, he gave him Lanka (Ceylon) as his capital, presented him with the vehicle pushpaka(according to the Ramayana), which was of immense size and ‘moved at the owner’s will at marvellous speed’. When Ravana captured Lanka, Kubera moved to his city of Alaka, and established his Yaksha Kingdom there.
 
 
Worship Of Lord Kubera :
 
Kubera’s house was believed to be the abode of Adilakshmi, the goddess of wealth who, pleased by his devotion, gave him immense wealth making him nideesha or the keeper of riches. Kubera also credited money to Vishnu for his marriage with Padmavati[3]. In remembrance of this, the reason devotees going to Tirupati donate money in Venkateshwara’s Hundi so that he can pay back to Kubera. According to the Vishnupuran this process will go on till the end of Kali yuga.

Thursday is the most auspicious day with star Pusa. He faces Northern direction.
 
Kubera is also worshipped by the Buddhists, where he is looked upon as the guardian of the North. His characteristic symbol is the mongoose, often shown vomiting jewels. In the Buddhist pantheon he is also known as Jambhala, probably from the jambhara (lemon) he carries in his hand. He is always represented corpulent and covered with jewels. His right foot is generally pendant and supported by a lotus-flower on which is a conch shell.
