abhisajjana : (nt.) cleaving; anger.

Source: BuddhaSasana: Concise Pali-English Dictionary

Abhisajjanā, (f.) (abstr. fr. abhisajjati, cp. abhisajjana) at Sn.49 evidently means “scolding, cursing, being in bad temper” (cp. abhisajjati), as its combn. with vāc’âbhilāpa indicates, but is expld. both by Nd2 & Bdhgh. as “sticking to, cleaving, craving, desire” (= taṇhā), after the meaning of abhisaṅga. See Nd2 89 & 107; SnA 98 (sineha-vasena), cp. also the compromise-expln by Bdhgh. of abhisajjati as kodha-vasena laggati (DA.I, 257). (Page 70)
