bhairavī yātatā (भैरवी यातता).—f The torment inflicted by bhairava the presiding deity of kāśī (Benares) on those that die there. This torment is expiatory of sin; and the spirit, purified through it, is absorbed at once into the essence of the Deity: whereas those that are punished by yama return afterwards to mundane existence.
