Bardo

The Tibetan word bardo means literally “intermediate state” – also translated as “transitional state” or “in-between state” or “liminal state”. In Sanskritthe concept has the name antarabhāva. It is a concept which arose soon after the Buddha’s passing…

{Sacred Calligraphy of The East by John Stevens mentions Bodhisattva of Hell Fudo Muyo, who saves murdered or dead children’s souls in between Buddha Shakyamuni (Gautama) passing away and Buddha Maitreya’s coming. In Japan parents place for their passed away children a statuette with red cap on a child by the road so that Fudo Muyo will save them. Mantra of Fudo Muyu is laughter: Ha-Ha-Ha … “Fudo Muyo Fudo Muyo Ha Ha Ha… Ha Ha Ha…” – so i hear children calling Fudo Muyo to save them and i chant with them} 

Used loosely, the term “bardo” refers to the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth. According to Tibetan tradition, after death and before one’s next birth, when one’s consciousness is not connected with a physical body, one experiences a variety of phenomena. These usually follow a particular sequence of degeneration from, just after death, the clearest experiences of reality of which one is spiritually capable, and then proceeding to terrifying hallucinations that arise from the impulses of one’s previous unskillful actions. For the prepared and appropriately trained individuals the bardo offers a state of great opportunity for liberation, since transcendental insight may arise with the direct experience of reality, while for others it can become a place of danger as the karmically created hallucinations can impel one into a less than desirable rebirth.

see link to 42 peaceful Bardo Dieties according to Tibetan experiences (peaceful deities can be different for Xristian people – they can be different for Hindu people – or they can be “mixed” from many “paths” depending on our past lives – it is best to listen to oneself than to choose any religious path from the mind because the mind tends to choose from most popular or most habitual…)
