Yama dev

 

Lord Yama or Yamraj, is the god of death. He is the son of Lord Surya and Sanjana. 'Yama' means twin, and this can be attributed to Hindu mythology where he is depicted as the twin brother of Yami (Yamuna). However, 'Yama' also means 'the restrainer'. So it is Lord Yama who restrains humankind. Lord Yama is the god of hell.


Lord Yama is shown with a grim appearance with a glittering crown on his head. He carries a mace in one hand, and a rope in the other. He uses the rope to pull the soul from the lifeless body. He is also considered as the Lord of Justice, a judge of the dead. According to the karma of the soul, he decides whether to give punishment, and the nature of punishment. Lord Yama rides a black water buffalo. He is the guardian of the south direction.
