Asura Vagga.-The tenth chapter of the Catukka Nipāta of the Anguttara Nikāya. It consists of ten suttas containing the classification of four kinds of individuals to be found in the world, with more or less detailed descriptions of them (A.ii.91-101).

Asura Sutta.-The first of the Asura Vagga. Four individuals exist in the world: the asura (a) with a retinue of asuras, (b) with a retinue of devas; the deva (a) with a retinue of devas, (b) with a retinue of asuras. The first is himself immoral, as is his company, and so on correspondingly with the others (A.ii.91).
