abhisajjana : (nt.) cleaving; anger.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's 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-explanation by Bdhgh. of abhisajjati as kodha-vasena laggati (DA.I, 257). (Page 70)

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
