Flying Devata playing flute

Some well-known Hindu-Buddhist heavenly beings belong to the group of devatas, such as apsaras or vidhyadaris (female cloud and water spirits) and their male counterparts, the gandharvas (heavenly musicians). Devatas often occur in Hindu epics such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata and some Buddhist holy scriptures.
