The transitional states between death and either the attainment of spiritual enlightenment or the return to the cycle of rebirth are explored in Bardo: The Tibetan Art of the Afterlife. For centuries, Tantric Buddhism has used tools that aid in the preparation for hallucinatory visions that appear in the afterlife. Only by recognizing these visions as illusory can buddhahood be attained.
