A rich setthi of Bheruva. He gave generously to holy men and to the needy. After death he was born in Tāvatimsa.
A former servant of Ankura, 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 Peta-Vatthu stanzas Asayha is once spoken of as Angirasa (p.25, v.23).
