tasa : (adj.) movable; trembling. || tāsa (m.) terror; fear; trembling.

Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary

Tāsa, (see tasati2) terror, trembling, fear, fright, anxiety S. III, 57; J. I, 342; III, 177, 202; Miln. 24. Cp. san°. (Page 300)

Tasa, (adj.) (from tasati2) 1. trembling, frightened J. I, 336=344 (vakā, expl. at 342 by tasita); perhaps the derived meaning of: — 2. moving, running (cp. to meaning 1 & 2 Gr. trέw to flee & to tremble), always in combination tasa-thāvarā (pl.) movable & immovable beings (cp. M Vastu I. 207 jaṅgama-sthāvara; II, 10 calaṃ sthāvara). Metaphorically of people who are in fear & trembling, as distinguished from a thāvara, a selfpossessed & firm being (=Arahant KhA 245). In this sense t. is interpreted by tasati1 as well as by tasati2 (to have thirst or worldly cravings) at KhA 245: tasantī ti tasā, sataṇhānaṃ sabhayānañ c’etaṃ adhivacanaṃ; also at Nd2 479: tasa ti yesaṃ tasitā (tasiṇā?) taṇhā appahīnā, etc., & ye te santāsaṃ āpajjanti. ‹-› S. I, 141; IV, 117, 351; V, 393; Sn. 146, 629; Dh. 405, Th. 1, 876; J. V, 221; Nd2 479; DhA. IV, 175. (Page 298)
