Upon the inception of the 5th cycle the mind begins to dissolve, in the sense that coarser types cease and subtler minds become manifest. First, conceptuality ceases, dissolving into a mind of white appearance. This subtler mind, to which only a vacuity filled by white light appears, is free from coarse conceptuality.. It, in turn, dissolves into a heightened mind of red appearance, which then dissolves into a mind of black appearance. At this point all that appears is a vacuity filled by blackness, during which the person eventually becomes unconscious.. In time this is cleared away, leaving a totally clear emptiness (the mind of clear light) free from the white, red and black appearances...

The intermediate state can last from a moment to se7en days, depending on whether or not a suitable birthplace is found.. If one is not found the being undergoes a "small death", experiencing the 8 signs of death as previously described (but very briefly). He/she then again experiences the eight signs of the reverse process and is reborn in a 2nd intermediate state. This can happen for a total of se7en births in the intermediate state (making a total of 49 days) during which a place of rebirth must be found..One will not necessarily be reborn as a human being.. B's describe 6 realms of existence that one can be reborn into, these being the hell realms, the preta (hungry ghost) realm, the animal realm, the human realm, the jealous god (asura) realm and the god (sura) realms..The state of mind at the time of death is regarded as extremely important, because this plays a vital part in the situation one is reborn into..

For the more adept practitioners there is also the method of transference of consciousness at the time of death (pho-wa).. With training, at the time of death, the practitioner can project his mind upwards from his heart centre through his crown directly to one of the Buddha pure realms, or at least to a higher rebirth.. Someone who has perfected this training can also assist others at the time of death to project their mind to a good rebirth..At the time of death (clear light stage) the consciousness (very subtle mind) leaves the body and the person takes the body of an intermediate state being.. They are in the form that they will take in their next life , but in a subtle rather than a gross form.. As mentioned previously, it can take up to 49 days to find a suitable place of rebirth..This rebirth is propelled by karma and is uncontrolled. In effect the karma of the intermediate state being matches that of its future parents.. The intermediate state being has the illusory appearance of its future parents copulating. It is drawn to this place by the force of attraction to its parent of the opposite sex, and it is this desire that causes the consciousness of the intermediate state being to enter the fertilized ovum.GB first ordained women as nuns 5 years after his enlightenment..This happens at or near the time of conception and cumming to earth on a cloud a new life has begun Ramses"..'ve had enough of this wowdy webel sniggewing behaviour..Silence!
