Hello all,

"Even in the Theravada collection of Suttas, there is a small but substantial body of evidence to support the idea of such a between-lives state, with the gandhabba as a kind of mutable, restless 'spirit' seeking out a new rebirth to 'fall' into" (Harvey, 1995: 98-108).

(pages 105 to 108 in this preview of The Selfless Mind by Brian Peter Harvey).
