Preta Realm (#25)

The Preta Realm, also known as the Hungry Ghost Realm, is in Buddhism a rebirth based on extreme desire or possessiveness which was cultivated in a past life. As a result, the individual is reborn as a Preta, or Hungry Ghost, a being consumed by extreme hunger and thirst, but incapable of satisfying these desires. Preta are interpreted differently by different cultures. In Japan for example one type of preta is the Gaki, hungry ghosts with swollen bellies and very thin necks, which can desire anything from food to human faeces. Preta are generally invisible to humans.
