(Thangka detail)
The god and goddess
of death and
karmic judgement,
the bull-horned
Yama and his 
consort Yami
riding on a bull 
which stamps on
a human
corpse, which lies
on a lotos-sun disc.
Both are naked and
surrounded by 
wisdom flames. In
his right hand Yama
swings his tantric 
club and in the left
he holds a loop
for catching
dead soals.
