Asraya is a Sanskrit word meaning “refuge,” “base,” “shelter” or “protection.” In Hindu philosophy, it can refer to a specific deity that is worshiped by a devotee, rather than Brahman as a whole. Within Buddhist philosophy, asraya can mean “one who offers,” or is sometimes used in reference to the physical body or can be equated with the six senses.
