Every human being strives at is best to prosper in his life. For that, blessing and wealth are very much essential in their life. To achieve this, one has to worship Lord Kubera who is the leader of the Treasur house under the able administration of Goddess Lakshmi, Source of wealth Kubera distributes or showers who worship him sincerely and also with full of honesty and belief. This same Kubera to his credit all the nine rivers do come under his control. To know more about Kubera, Sri balaji for his marriage has taken money from Kubera and repayment continuousing in this kaliyuga. As the devotees pay their debts like money, God, silver, Jewellery etc. to Sri Balaji he inturn pays to Kubera to clear off the loan. As Kubera gave money for Sri Lakshmi Balaji marriage itself, what is speak of is position of enormous wealth. Even though Lakshmi and Kubera are to energies / Power / and leaders of wealth, Kubera's wealth is very well mentioned in Rigveda. He is the store house of all prosperity and takes highest responsibilities. So his blessing is very much required even in Temple's daily poojas. Otherwise we see some Temples get ruined for want of sufficient funds. As this is the case of temple, what to tell about the ordinary human beings. As said above, when he is worshipped he converts every one of us to the highest elevated platform.

Vaishravane is the grandson of Brahma. Who is none other then Kubera. Indeed, he is the cousin to Ravana. Even though there was a mutual fight between them, due to the vision and grace of Kubera on Ravana's Kingdom, Ranvana and his subjects were able to live a luxurious life.
Whenever Kubera reaches his other distinations by using his plane many droppings of gold silver and pearls were there. Those places flourished in no time. The epic says with this same flying equipment Ravana Kidnapped Sita.
Kubera did severe penance. On seeing his penance lords Shiva was very much pleased and his seat in northern direction was handed over to him. With the leadership he adorned him as king of Anandapuri.
