Pacchā (पच्छा).—(em.; Pali id.) or better pacche (with mss.), MIndic for Sanskrit paścā(t), behind: te dāni kusumāni pa° dṛṣṭvā anugacchanti Mahāvastu ii.106.2, they now seeing the flowers (which she had left) behind (her), follow after. The mss. reading may stand, possibly as a blend of pacchā = paścāt with its synonym pṛṣṭhe, in the rear, behind; in any case it is supported by the statement of Hemacandra 1.79 that in AMg. (ārṣe) pacche-(kammaṃ) may be used for paścāt-, and by the stem paśca, q.v., even in [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit], in loc. paści m.c. for paśce, and in composition
