Apparently Nagas are rather sensitive.
When the Bodhisattva named Precious Ocean develops his vows he says: "May all the three lower states of sentient beings such as animal, ghost, and hell leave their sufferings and each have a Buddha to teach him."
When Vajraprajna Bodhisattva develops his Bodhicitta he says, "May all those sentient beings who are still in the bad and painful states of animal, ghost, and hell leave their bad state and ascend to the Pure Land."
The inward spiritual practice is for the benefit of both the living and the unseen forces.We should have compassion for all.

I don't deny the existence of spirits, devas and so on, but just that there's little way of knowing their activities for certain.
As Confucius said, respect them but keep your distance.
Buddha could see spirits too. Was he hallucinated or attempting to get attention with such claims?
