According to the scriptures, people who have 14 types of bad qualities on this earth are considered as dead people. In the Ravana-Angad dialogue in Lanka Kand, it is said by Angal that only those who breathe are not called alive – even an animal takes breath. Angad then told about 14 types of death. These things told by Angad to Ravana are applicable even in today’s era. If a person has even one of these 14 demerits, then he becomes like a dead person. Consider whether we do not have this bad quality….. that we should be considered as dead.
