Artist's Description

The Tibetan word Bardo means literally “intermediate state” – also translated as “transitional state” or “in-between state” or “liminal state”.
There are six traditional bardo states known as the Six Bardos: the Bardo of This Life, the Bardo of Meditation, the Bardo of Dream, the Bardo of Dying, the Bardo of Dharmata (Reality) and the Bardo of Existence.

I’ve long been fascinated by the concept of the various bardos and this image has a dream bardo kind of feel for me.

Many thanks to bodhiimages
for the use of his beautiful poem
bardo/song for the dead

to be at peace, in this heart of hearts

even when one, so precious, departs

seeing the truth, neither here nor there

trusting this life, so unique, so rare

everything changes, in the blink of an eye

knowing the mind is as vast as the sky

clouds may come and rain may fall

and strings of the heart will always call

let them play their sweet songs of joy

a melody so pure, no thought could destroy
be at one and look within, remain peacefully aware

of everything and everyone, let love shine
