Re: QUERY> Bardo in Taiwan?

Hi Carl. The bardo is not a Taiwanese nor Tibetan invention. There is elaborate debate about the concept (Skt. antarābhava) at least back to the 2nd century BCE Kathāvatthu. There is a good link about it from UVA with references here: https://collab.its.virginia.edu/wiki/renaissanceold/Concept%20Encyclopedia%20Analysis%20-%20The%20Bardo.html.
