"Asita" in Sanskrit means incomparably proper, or of correct proportions in spirit and physique. According to legend, Asita was born with two long white eyebrows. In his previous life he was a monk who tried very hard to attain enlightenment, even at a ripe old age he could not, and all he had left was long white eyebrows. After his death he reincarnated as a human being again.

After his rebirth, his father was told that the Buddha Shakyamuni also has two long eyebrows, therefore his son had the Appearance of the Buddha. As a result, Asita was sent to a monastery to become a monk, eventually attaining enlightenment.
