The Kubera is a demi-god. He was not found in the early literature with any godly status, in the Atharvaveda and in Satpathabrahmana Kuber is portrayed as lord of the evil spirits and criminals. According to legend, the Kubera was jealous of Parvati and the Shiva. The enraged Parvati turned Kuber into a dwarf and blinded him. It also turned kubera’s eye yellow. However, in the Ramayana, Kuber received his godly status and in the list of demigods. The Kubera received his godhood from the Brahma for his severe penance. In the Ramayana, the Kubera was the king of Sri Lanka and ultimately thrown out by Ravana. The Kubera with his godly status is in Buddhist literature and also in Jainism. The Kuber is always famous for his flying chariot the Pushpak. The Kubera is the god of wealth and preserves nidhis. In India, Kuber is the symbol of wealth. The Kubera in later literature was the founder of Alaka near Kailash.
