Yama



Yama is the god of death according to Hindu and Vedic mythology. He is death- personified, and takes or collects the soul from the mortal world. He has been depicted in different form of art- theater, movies, children's tales and paintings. Many interpretations and popular culture has affected the way we view him. My favorite version is the modern uber-cool bored and looking for a bit of fun 'soul-collector' in a Bollywood movie. Hilarious depiction. Different cultures around the world has a God of death but with a different name. I would like to know more about it. :)
