Demons and evil spirits as according to hindu mythology

There are two great classifications of such forms of evil and demon spirits in hindu mythology, one is created by the gods during the creation of the world and thus brought into the world as demons or gunas, soon after the forms of evil and demon spirits in hindu mythology depend on the cause and kind of death occured to the individual.

The demons usually act at the orders of the greater deities as Nandi of lord siver or the deemons, whose were  created due to man, rather to the spirits of men, who have once lived on the earth. the existence of these demons is derived from deceased spirits of dead human brings and it is to these that admiration and propetation are commonly offered. All malignant deevils are believed to have been originally human beings.

If a man is injured and finally killed by a tiger or dies due to snakebite and does not receive proper funeral ceremonies, becomes a ghostly spirit.It is believed that to become an unquite spirit, roaming about with malicious intentions is only possible if the death has occurred due to sudden and unhealthy reason. Death in an accident and formal discarding without proper funeral ceremonies or death inflicted by criminals and disposal of the body furtively without proper religious rites changes the transitional body into deadly and fiery ghosts or roaming spirits.

In southern india it is believed that if a dishonorable man dies suddenly or accidentally his evil nature never expires and his every nearby souls assumes his personality and lives after him as demon. this is equally applicable to women, so the demons can be of both the sexes, of any cast.
