Bardo (Barzakh)

The first term comes from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the second from Sufi Islam. Ancient Egypt called it the Duat. All these terms refer to the condition of the soul after the dissolution or death of the molecular body and before entry into another molecular body, i.e. to that state of being which is inter-incarnational or intermediate (the actual meaning of the word barzakh). For those who have not begun the metamorphic process the intermediate Bardo state is dreamlike, with the dreams being either lovely or nightmarish, depending on the degree to which the soul had developed those qualities during his or her last incarnation on earth.
