“Where are we really?
We know we are in this room, so the question is much deeper,
where are we?!
…we are neither there nor here; we are in-between!
I’m serious, this is what bardo means!
Bardo means gap. Neither here nor there.
And this is not an easy subject, and why it is so difficult is
because actually there is no here and there!
Therefore, how can there be a gap?”

— Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

We look forward to seeing you in the bardos!!
