(said to be pronounced: day' va)

is a Sanskrit word which can be translated technically as "intelligent agent."

Its mythological meaning is "god" or "goddess." In the ancient literature every tree, flower, river, and mountain was represented by a deva in charge of organizing its intelligence. Cities and other large groups of people were also represented by devas.

In modern terms the word deva can also be understood to mean "organizing intelligence."
