Asan.ga was dropped as the son of a Hindu ascendant in Purushapura (recognize day City in Pakistan), which at that instant was break of the ancient field of Gandha-ra. He was perhaps originally a member of the Mahi-s'a-saka school or the Mu-lasarva-stiva-da polish but ulterior reborn to Maha-ya-na.
In the disc of his journeys through the kingdoms of India, Xuanzang wrote that Asan.ga was initially a Mahi-s'a-saka jazzman, but soon upturned toward the Maha-ya-na teachings. Asan.ga had a half-brother, Vasubandhu, who was a jazzman from the Sarva-stiva-da schoolhouse. Vasubandhu is said to mortal usurped up Maha-ya-na Faith after convergency with Asan.ga and one of Asan.ga's disciples.
