Assa Sutta, 2 Definition(s)
Once Assa, the Jockey (assaroha) of Rajagaha came to the Buddha to ask if it were true that a horse trainer, if he exerted himself in the performance of his duties, would be born among the Saranjita devas? The Buddha tells him that such a view is a perverted one and that its result is rebirth either in purgatory or as an animal. Assa expresses his consternation and declares himself thenceforth a follower of the Buddha. S.iv.310.
