Yama (the Binder) is the god of death, the sovereign of the infernal regions. The wrathful one, who judges the dead, whom his messengers drag before his throne. He is the embodiment of righteousness (Dharma) and the king-of-justice (dharma-rāja). He is, however, compassionate. In the Vedas, Yama is the First Ancestor and the king-of-Ancestors (pitṛ-rāja). He rules over the kingdom of the dead where the Ancestors dwell till they move to Pitrilok. He is also the king-of-ghosts (preta-rāja).
Yama is the great master of knowledge. In the Kaṭhopaniṣad, Yama is portrayed as a teacher to Nachiketa; the legendary little boy. Their conversation evolves to a discussion of the nature of humans, knowledge, Atman (soul, self), Brahman, immortality and moksha (liberation). In other texts, Yama is also called Kaal (time).
