These are the lovely celestial lady spirits who inhabit the Hindu Heaven of DEVALOKA. They are a bit similar to the Greek Nymphs except they tend to be a bit more flirty. Having nicknames such as the ‘daughters of pleasure’ does give the game away there.
They are also known as ‘Essences of Water’ as many are water nymphs. At the last count there were 35 million of them, so to complement the chorus line they could also appear as part of the scenery in the form of clouds, rainbows, butterflies and graceful animals. Even monkeys.
