The practice and invocation of Jambhala is found in the Anuttarayoga system in the Guhyasamaja, Hevajra and Chakrasamvara Tantras. His practice is associated with the accumulation of wealth, both spiritual and worldly, and thus his association with the mongoose disgorging jewels.
Another fourteenth century ungilt figure of Jambhala of the same size in the British Museum (acc. no. 1983,1109.1) from the John H. Barnett Collection has similarly characteristic arched eyebrows; inlaid disk earrings and U-shaped necklace falling to the belly; the broad face and physique; and the highly distinctive floral garland which encirled the shoulder and pools between the feet of the deity.
