Asayha

A millionaire (seṭṭhi) of Bheruva. He gave generously to holy men and to the needy. After death he was born in Tāvatiṃsa.

A former servant of Aṅkura, who had settled down as a tailor in Bheruva, used to show the way to those who sought the house of Asayha, and was, therefore, reborn as a powerful yakkha (PvA.112).

In the Petavatthu stanzas Asayha is once spoken of as Aṅgirasa (p.25, v.23).
