The Fact

The Fact is one and only simple word “DEATH”, no alternative. Create means dissolve. Birth means death. This is the Fact. And all will be controlled by “Dharmaraj, the Lord of Death “ JAMA (YAMA)” according to Hindu Mythology. Yama, the judge of men and king of the unseen world, was the son of Vivasvat (the sun) and Saranya, the daughter of Tvastri. He was born before his mother had become afraid of her glorious husband. He was twin-brother of Yami, and they were regarded as the primeval pair from whom the human family has sprung.


Yama was the first of mortals who died, and, having discovered the way to the other world, is the guide of those who depart this life, and is said to conduct them to a home which is made secure for them for ever. He is a king, and dwells in celestial light in the innermost sanctuary of heaven. He grants bright homes to the pious who dwell with him.

Yama is the much-feared Hindu god of death who lives in his gloomy palace Kalichi situated somewhere in the nether regions or the Hindu Patala. He is the regent of the Southern quarter of the compass. Yama has a number of attendants to assist him in his many tasks. In his palace he keeps a register called the "Book of Destiny" in which each person's span of life is recorded. This is maintained by one of the god's attendants and the servant is predictably as gloomy of countenance as his master. When a person's span of life is over Yama sends some of his more robust attendants up to earth to haul the person down to his palace.

Sometimes, when things are not lively enough down in Kalichi, Yama himself ascends riding on his buffalo, his steed of choice, and carrying in one hand a heavy mace to strike down the victim with and in another a noose to drag the hapless person down to his palace. There the dead man or woman's soul is made ready to pass in judgment before Yama, who sits on his throne in a great hall in his terrifying palace. Chitragupta, one of Yama's better-known attendants, reads out of a great book the sum of the soul's virtues and sins. Yama judges the dead person on this basis and he assigns the soul accordingly to either one of his many hells, a mete fate for inveterate sinners, or to the abode of the Pitris (The Pitris are the forefathers and their abode is tantamount to heaven to a Hindu who is reconciled with his or her forefathers in this place. Only a very virtuous person is allowed to enter the abode of the Pitris.). If the person has been rather moderate on Earth and is neither a great sinner nor a great virtuoso then he or she is sent back to Earth by Yama to have another try at striving to enter the abode of the Pitris. Since most Hindus are not fond of dying many ways have been devised to try and elude Yama and his untimely summons.

All the humankind lives in the Beauty Queen Earth, are not like to face the Fact. A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live. The happiness-giving path of the Shining Ones has been described by you. We now wish to hear about the fear-inspiring Way of Yama; Death is a painful truth, is what some say. I think Death is a foggy road, and we must get through that fog called life to finally see the clearing. It's yet another path to walk, and who is to say it will be our last? Life may be the beginning, but who is to say Death is our last path? What if Death is the middle of the story, and you have to read through that to get to a place beyond death? Is there a place beyond death? And this is the FACT.

Many people live their life had feared death, suppressed dealing with the notion, never ready to depart. Always they would be tomorrow and the day after. As they had aged they had kept company with older folks, after all, if they were still living then they were young. But there came a day when every one of her older friends had face the Fact and passed on and a fair few of the younger ones too. Time was no longer her casual acquaintance, but leading her steadily onward whether her feet wanted to follow or not.

There are many ways to fearlessly face to the Fact (death) Through The Path of Ethical Discipline, That is The “Yama & Niyama”

Yama & Niyama( YOGA) is a journey of creating harmony in one’s life and letting go of the blocks that keep us from this harmony. In the process, we discover a deeper reality of being, a place of contentment, wisdom, and joy .
