Yamaraja Prays for Pardon
Lord Yamaraja took upon himself the responsibility for the offense committed by his servants. If the servant of an establishment makes a mistake, the establishment takes responsibility for it. Although Yamaraja is above offenses, his servants, practically with his permission, went to arrest Ajamila, which was a great offense. The nyaya-sastra confirms, bhrtyaparadhe svamino dandah: “If a servant makes an offense, the master is punishable.” Taking this seriously, Yamaraja, along with his servants, prayed with folded hands to be excused by the Supreme Lord, Narayana.
