Can anyone explain how so many ghosts (earthbound human spirits) can exist, if reincarnation is the norm? All the sacred books I read gave me to believe that reincarnation was nearly inescapable at death.

It is not necessary that every soul has to necessarily reincarnate. The law of karma applies here too. Both Buddhism and Hinduism speak about ghosts, evil spirits etc. who become caught in the earth sphere if they commit suicide or indulge in such grave sins. They remain so in the twilight zone until they find an escape through chance, the blessings of saintly people, good works, or until their natural lifespan upon earth is completed.

I was not aware of this. Could you please elaborate on the ways ghosts escape from being earthbound, to enter back into the reincarnation cycle; and besides suicide, are there any other specific known causes of being stuck here? Thanks for your help!
