The abbot tells them it is still very important to ordain. It is related to the Buddhist story regarding Nak (นาค - people who are going to the Buddhist temple and about to become ordained).

As the spirit wishes to ordain, they open the grave but cannot find the body. In order to ease the spirit, they do perform an ordination ceremony through an iPad with a remote abbot as the local abbot is dead. But it fails as one of the questions is about if the candidate to ordination is human or not. A ghost is not human (ไม่ได้เป็นมนุษย์). Finally the spirit listens to his mother and accepts to leave this world. The ordination of the 3 friends can happen peacefully.
