The sanskrit word 'antarabhava' means "the intermediate state" and it is particularly used to describe the state between death and future rebirth.
The creation of this record was inspired by "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" - ritual Buddhist text which is read to the deceased. It describes the process of dying and the states of mind that are experienced after death. According to the subject-matter of this book, the consciousness of the dead, before it is again reborn, experiences a variety of visions and archetypal manifestations of individual and collective sub-consciousness. The way one reacts to these visions and mental phenomena, which may evoke fear or strong desire, in a high-degree conditions the circumstances of future existence.
All phenomena appearing in the intermediate state are, in their essence, the expression of the dead's mind. That is why one should not be afraid or desire them. Instead one should experience them as illusory manifestations of primordial, limitless and beyond personal awareness, which is also called in Buddhism the State of Truth (Dharmakaya). All forms and phenomena that we experience during the lifetime, the intermediate state between birth and death, have similarly illusory nature.
