5 Reasons Why Some People Become Ghosts After Death (VIDEO)

by Pulkit Mathur, The Spiritual Bee

How do we avoid getting trapped as a ghost after death? In the following video we take a look at some thought-provoking lessons from the Rishis of Vedanta, who detail the correct manner in which we must live life, so as to avoid the “preta yoni” or the ghost state after death.

Recall from the earlier video, that burials are one of the causes identified by the sages, as to why some people, especially those who have nurtured a deep attachment with their earthly life, become ghosts after death. Now in this video we shall go through 5 additional causes.


The Isha Upanishad referenced in this video is also known as the “Isavasya Upanisad”. There are 2 excellent translations available of this Upanishad:

The first is by Swami Chinmayananda, which lists the original Sanskrit verses, along with their word-by-word English translation, followed by a detailed explanation (known as commentary). It can be purchased from the Chinmaya Mission in India or the United States.

Another most excellent and detailed explanation of the verses of the Isha Upanishad has been written by Sri Aurobindo and this book is available for a free download.
