Asuras can grow mighty indeed in their endless cycle of reincarnation. The most powerful among them are the asura ranas, who dwell in ruined holy places, abandoned deific domains, or in the wilds of Hell. These potent fiends have unique forms and are considered demigods with the power to grant spells to their worshipers. They can demand anything of lesser members of their race, as they are revered as sages and profane bodhisattvas. They usually dwell in places that allow them to deny devotees of the deities access to holy objects or sites.[1][2]

Geryon, now an archdevil, was formerly an asura rana.[3]

Known asura ranas

The following list includes several asura ranas named in myth and tales of woe.[1][4]
