The Chinese have several deities that they regard as the wealthy god. This is one of the most popular Chinese Gods of Wealth depicted wearing a dragon robe, carrying a gold ingot, and sitting on a tiger.
What the God of Wealth symbolizes and its Application in Symbolism Feng Shui:
The God of Wealth, or ‘Chai Sen Yeh’ is one of the most popular symbols of wealth, prosperity, and fortune. He’s extremely popular in the Chinese community so much so that elaborate ritual are performed during the Chinese lunar new year to welcome the God of Wealth into the household thereby bringing in lots of good fortune and magnifying windfall and speculative luck in life for the year to come.
Display the image of the God of Wealth in your living room, main hall, or offices for wealth luck; in good times, he brings prosperity; in bad times, he protects your family from poverty. He is best placed facing directly the entrance. If this is not possible, place the Wealth God diagonally but still facing toward the entrance. Like Fuk Luk Sau, you do not have to pray to this deity.
You can also place the God of Wealth in:
1. your Sheng Chi or Best direction based on your KUA number (8 Mansion Theory)
2. Southeast sector to activate your wealth luck as this is the universal wealth corner based on Pakua Aspirations Trigram theory.
3. Water star-8 location in your home or workplace.
Although Wealth Gods are not worshipped or prayed to as deities, do treat them with respect. Do not place them on the floor, toilet areas, or kitchen.
