This idea that the 50 Verses on were written by Aryasura or Ashavagosha is widespread, but it cannot be right. The 1st Century CE is far too early for this text, which quotes the Guhyasamaja root tantra (the second verse, though unattributed, comes from this tantra), and hence must have been written some centuries later. According to Tsarchen Losal Gyamtso, it was written by Bhavideva. Identifying Bhavideva with Ashvagosha is highly dubious given the dates.
