Etymology[edit | edit source]
Yamarāja (also as "Yama" - "-rāja" is an honourific suffix denoting "king", or "lord") is the demigod of death, in early Hinduism, where he is charged with punishing the sinful.
Some tales state that he was the first man ever to die, while others maintain that he has always been a god of death.
Despite his origins in Hindu myth, his worship and customs spread across Asia, where he perfoms a similar role - directing souls to Naraka (Buddhist purgatory) to be punished, or renewed in the cycle of Karma.
He also, however, is a protector figure, and deliverer of justice in his aspect of a Dharmapala ("Wrathful God").
