LORD CHITRAGUPTA

Lord Chitragupta is the chronicler of the good and bad deeds of individual souls during their sojourn on earth. He is not only the right-hand man of Yama Dharma Raja (the God of death) but is equated with Yama himself.

His judgement as to whether the soul of a particular individual should be consigned to hell or lofted to heaven, is accepted by Yama Dharma Raja as final and He orders his Kinkaras (Messengers) to mete out punishment in hell or heavenly bliss accordingly.

Lord Chitragupta, as the name suggests, was born from a picture drawn by Parvati into which Lord Siva breathed life. As be was born from a picture he was given the name 'Chitragupta.'
