A, BA, KA, DA/RA, E/I, GA, HA, LA, MA, NA NGA, O/U, PA, SA TA, WA, YA

Baybayin is syllabic so the characters represents a syllable.

Aurora

Broken down to the syllables

The Au sounds is A W hence A W RO RA



Asura

If you noticed, there's a kudlit at the bottom of the SA character, That kudlit makes the sound O/U hence the SU in A SU RA
