Yama in ancient Indian mythology is the ruler of the kingdom of the dead, son of Vivasvat and Saranyu, he is depicted in engravings dressed in a red dress, his riding animal (vanaha) is a black buffalo, his weapons are a club and a noose, with which he removes the soul from the body.
Yama lives in the lower world, in his capital Yamapura. He sits on his throne, and when his messengers bring the soul of the dead, the scribe Chitragupta reports all his deeds and actions on earth. According to this report, Yama passes judgment, and the soul of the deceased either settles in the ancestral paradise, or goes to one of the circles of hell, or returns to earth in another bodily form.
The basic Yama technique is outlined in the Viet Vo Dao School "Thien Duong" "Khikong. The Yama technique".
The second name of this technique is the technique of "death".
The name speaks for itself. This technique is considered one of the most effective. "Only I or my servants can take someone's life," says Yama. The technique of "black ghost" studied only the elected, the essence of each action in this technique - death.
The warrior who knew it was death itself. The legends of the schools say that the servants of Yama appear on earth every few years. They are born into ordinary families and grow up as ordinary children. The purpose of their appearance is to rid the earth of sinners. No matter where the servants of Yama are born, sooner or later they will get their hands on an instrument with which to carry out their mission.
As a rule, there are three or four of them in a group. One of them later becomes the head of the school.
The technique of death had to be studied by all students of the school, but only up to a certain level. Only a select few specialized in it, and few were able to fully comprehend the technique of Yama.
"A teacher must see who Yama has sent," the school's lore says.
If one tried to learn the Yama technique for selfish purposes, the learning would come to a dead end and one would be disappointed in its efficacy.
When studying any art, one should not seek to profit from it, much less from the art of killing.
