The Rich Wealth God is seen carrying a large gold ingot with a scroll that has good fortune Chinese characters on it. He is wearing a robe with the auspicious longevity symbol. Depicted with a happy smiling expression, he invites good fortune and wealth wherever he is displayed; homes or offices.
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 8 Life Aspirations 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.
