(Piācha). A Sanskrit term that has a dual meaning. In theosophical literature as well as in Indian folklore, piācas refer to ghosts. They are astral shells of those who have lived evil lives, and thus these shades have malevolent influences. In the Purānas, piācas refer to sons of Gods commonly regarded as demons, as are the Dānavas, Daityas, and the Rākshasas.
