Re: Yes or No ...

Yes.
In Sanskrit, such a being is called a dakini, a term generally translated "space-goer," "celestial woman," or "cloud fairy."

Better Blow It


We know all about the trumpet
We do not blow it
No blowing
No music
Knowing becomes useless
Mere information
Imitation
The more we blow
The greater the inner strength
The nearer the goal
