Apsara Fairies


Water Nymphs of Hindu mythology that were created during the Churning of the Waters and now dance in heaven in front of Indra. They sometimes live in banana and fig trees where passers by can hear them playing cymbals and lutes. They are also companioned with the Gandharvas, the air spirits of music. They give good fortune to those who engage in games of luck but can cause derangement in those that hear their music by enticing them with their smiles. They also live in arjuana trees and live among the peacocks. - See more at: http://www.mythicalcreatureslist.com/mythical-creature/Apsaras#sthash.ZtacPsHP.dpuf

I thought that I would do another fairy for you all my dears friends and followers, I am doing much better this
third week in my nasty cold, I have been trying to answer all your lovely comments:o) And I will continue to Apsaras fairies or spirits, which are refers to as the divine beauties and dancers who populated Lord Indras court in Hindu mythology in Japan. I will try to cover both as best that I can. I hope that you all will find this post as interesting as all of the rest of my stories:0)
try to keep up as best as I can. My next post is about the Apsara Fairies which have many different twist and turns about this Fairies. I found both the Hindu & Buddha Apsara spirits females of the clouds/ And The Sanskrit term for these celestial beings as the 
Besides the two different and other cultural Mythology of the Apsara fairy and female spirits they are also companions with the Gandharvas, the air spirits of music. They give good fortune to those who engage in games of luck, but can cause derangement in those that hear their music by enticing them with their smiles.
These beautiful fairies have also been know to live in the Arjuana trees and live among the peacocks which I have found that are very sacred in their own. I am planning to do a post just on the beauty of these amazing birds the Peacocks at some point.:0)
The Apsaras have been referred in ancient stories, legends as well as in fairy tales. They are variously described as fairies, angels, nymphs and sirens too. Actually they are celestial maidens of exquisite beauty 
and alluring charm, atrtistically blessed with the power of dance and song. They also have the will power so

that they can change their body shape/ shapeshifters to any form they desire. 
The Apsaras are really the court dancers of the kings of the gods, of Indra. It is Indra under whose instructions the Apsaras seduce mortals, kings and sages, who became powerful enough to threaten the Mighty Indra. It is said that the male counterparts of the Apsaras are called Gandharvas, who are also very 
expert in music as well. The Apsaras dance in Indra' court while the Gandharvas sings and plays the music. 
How that I have given you a little bit about the Apsara fairy history I thought I would go in more detail, because this fairy has a lot more depth to them. 
'An Apsara or Sanskrit is a feminine of either Vietnamese, Bidadari, Malay, Indonesian and Tausug  also known as a Vidhya Dhari. Is a female fairy spirit of the clouds and the waters. In Hindu and Buddhist mythology, the Apsara is frequently translated as Apsara  which are "nymphs 'celestial nymph and celestial maiden." These Apsaras are supernatural beautiful girls; that will appear as young women of great beauty and
elegance who are proficient in the arts of dancing. They are said to be the wives of the Gandharvas, court
servants of Indra. They will dance to the music made by their
husbands, usually in the palaces of the Gods and entertain the Gods and fallen heroes. In their assignment as caretakers of fallen heroes, they may be compared to the valkyries of Norse Mythology. Apsaras are also shapeshifters too and can change their shape at will, specially when rule over the fortunes of gaming and gambling. 

Some of the most famous Apsara fairies were Urvasi Menaka, Rambha and Tilottama. 
Sometimes the Apsaras are compared to the muses of ancient Greece, Also they are associated with 
water so they may be compared to nymphs, dryads and naiads of ancient Greece as well. They are also 
associated with fertility rites. In Hinduism the lower Apsaras are sometimes regarded as nature spirits who may lure men to their deaths; in this respect they may be compared to the Slavic Rusalki or the Greek sirens.
Apsaras 
 In japan the Apsaras in called Tennyo-celestial maidens or Tennin-heavenly beings. Yu usually will find the art work of these Apsaras Fairies appearing most frequently as dancers and musicians who adorn the Budda in statuary paintings, temples and structure of both China, Japan and Southeast Asia. I couldn' t find the attributes of these Apsaras Fairies in Japan culture as clearly but In the paintings it was quite clear that they are almost always shown standing, 
sitting or flying through the clouds in the most graceful poses.




 playing musical instruments or scattering flowers to give praises to the gods.
