asurinda : (m.) the king of Asuras.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary
Asurinda refers to: Chief or king of the Titans. Several Asuras are accredited with the rôle of leaders, most commonly Vepacitti (S. I, 222; IV, 201 sq.) and Rāhu (A. II, 17, 53; III, 243). Besides these we find Pahārāda (gloss Mahābhadda) at A. IV, 197.
Note: asurinda is a Pali compound consisting of the words asura and inda.
Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
