The '''intermediate state''' in Buddhism is the state in which beings exist between successive lives according to some schools of Buddhism. Some scholars believe this idea was implicit in some of the early discourses ascribed to the Buddha. It was found in the [[Abhidharma]] of the Sarvastivada, a school now extinct whose ideas are influential in Mahayana Buddhism. This idea in particular was inherited by Mahayana. A very elaborate form of this idea is found in the [[Tibetan Book of the Dead]].

The intermediate state in Buddhism is the state in which beings exist between successive lives according to some schools of Buddhism. Some scholars believe this idea was implicit in some of the early discourses ascribed to the Buddha. It was found in the Abhidharma of the Sarvastivada, a school now extinct whose ideas are influential in Mahayana Buddhism. This idea in particular was inherited by Mahayana. A very elaborate form of this idea is found in the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
