    Bardo, Death and Dying

    Bardo refers here to the mind in the intermediate state after death or when the consciousness is separated from the previous body. It is the state between the past life and the next coming life. The mind born in Bardo gets a mental dream-like body, which can leave and reach anyplace any time without any obstacles.
