I think only if they rejoice can they get merit, but I could be wrong.
There are other devas and petas who can rejoice.
Paradattūpajīvika peta can get benefit and you should share with all beings (who might be your relatives). Then some who are able to know can get merit.


Bhante is there any stanza or anything which I should say to
sharing benifit with everyone
Also what is the benifit of sharing with everyone… instead of sharing with only dead relatives
