Bardo is a Tibetan word which is used to describe the period between a person having died and the point where they are born into a new incarnation. It is sometimes called the 'life between lives', but this term is not strictly accurate, as there is no 'life' as such even though there is activity, and consciousness is maintained. 'Life' exists between birth into the physical and then death in the physical. In Bardo on the other hand one is a disembodied spirit - the Higher spirit.
On birth we are given a Personality suited to our Destiny. Personality is different from the Higher spirit. It is that permanent set of attributes - the character traits that make us who we are – a recognisable human being our conscious self.
But as you can see from the diagram, during what we term 'death', when the Higher spirit has no physical body, perceptions are still being made. This is the Bardo.
