According to the Dhamma(afaik), there are three types of heavenly beings.
- Devas - Gods(male)
- Apsara/Divyangana - Angels(female) who accompany the gods.
- Brahmas(Rupa/Arupa) - ?
We can use the word 'god' or 'higher-god' to refer to brahmas, but that doesn't clearly separate them from Devas who belong to the sensual world. Is there a better English word?
