Happiness can come from wisdom as well as beauty, music and art. The Japanese goddess Benzai-ten is the goddess of all these inspiring gifts. She is believed to bring happiness and wealth--appropriately, the middle syllable of her name, zai, means "talent" or "wealth" in Japanese. Sometimes the goddess is portrayed with eight arms bearing open hands, symbolizing her many talents and all-encompassing generosity.


Benzai-te's realm lies beneath the beautiful waters of Lake Biwa, where she is believed to be married to dragon kind; the goddess was able to tame him through her love. Water is a universal symbol for wealth. usually of the financial kind. To be able to share one's talents with the world in exchange for personal wealth is the happiest if situation.
