Accident, Death by

In The MAHATMA LETTERS TO A. P. SINNETT, accident is mentioned as one of the three causes of premature deaths, the other two being suicide and violent death, such as murder. In such cases, the normal physical life span of the individual is cut short, but the person continues to be alive in the astral world without a physical body, and only leaves the astral world when the natural quantity of life energy is exhausted, after which the astral body becomes but an astral shell. Such victims of accidents can be reincarnated quickly.
