In the following post

Interpretation of the Tipitaka – Gandhabba Example

… under #3 we have:

“…the manomaya kāya (gandhabba) may live for thousands of years in the human bhava”

I’m assuming that a gandhabba can stay in the gandhabba form for thousands of year straight, without birth (jati) as a human with a physical body.

I found the following thing you said interesting:

“One ghost they saw was of a girl who was near her own portrait in a palace/museum they visited.”

Is this an example of attachment (tanha)? i.e. attachment to the previous physical human existence?
