      Dear Herman
      Dhammas arise and fall away instantaneously, while the idea of an
      intermediate being is rooted in an idea of a lasting being, it is
      wrong view.
      This thread may help

      Also as this is a Theravada forum presumably all members understand
      that the ideas expressed should be Theravada, not Tibetan or any
      other philosophy.
