  • Yama (Sanskerta: यम; Yama) adalah dewa akhirat dalam agama Hindu. Menurut kepercayaan umat Hindu, dialah dewa yang pertama kali dijumpai oleh roh orang mati saat berangkat menuju wilayah surgawi, sehingga dia juga bergelar dewa kematian. Tugasnya yang utama adalah mengadili roh orang mati, dengan didampingi oleh asistennya yang disebut , pencatat karma manusia. Karena keadilannya, ia disebut pula Dharmaraja. Yama biasanya digambarkan sebagai seorang pria berkulit biru, memiliki wahana berupa seekor kerbau hitam raksasa. Ia bersenjata gada atau dan membawa jerat.
  • Yama (em sânscrito: यम) é o deus da morte e o senhor do Samsara no Hinduísmo, primeiro registro feito nos Vedas. Yama pertence às primeiras camadas da mitologia indo-ariana. Na tradição védica Yama foi considerado ser o primeiro mortal que morreu e espiou o caminho para a morada celestial, e em virtude da sua precedência ele tornou-se o regente dos mortos. Em algumas passagens, entretanto, ele já é considerado deus da morte. O nome Yama pode ser interpretado pelo significado de "gêmeo", pois em alguns mitos ele faz par com sua irmã gêmea .
