From a talk given by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche June 1, 2018 at White Lotus Buddhist Center:
There are three ways to understand what a prosperity vase is. First, it is a palace for the deity. Secondly, it becomes the deity itself. And thirdly, it is a source of infinite offering goddesses who come and present whatever offerings are needed or wished for. These three qualities are shared by both vases and stupas. In addition, as these vases have been consecrated according to Dzambhala* they are embued with blessings from the deity. Having one of these vases in your home brings blessings both to the beings in your home and the outer environment. So it’s a really wonderful thing to have a vase like this.
When we talk about Dzambhala and wealth practices, basically we’re saying that we need love because the world can be full of material wealth and yet without love there’s no happiness. So, when we say prosperity or good fortune, what we’re talking about is love – because that’s what brings happiness. Otherwise, without love you can have a hundred million dollars and just be a hungry ghost.
*[Dzambhala is an emanation of Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. He is particular known for eliminating poverty and granting financial stability.]
