PTS Pali-English dictionary The Pali Text Society's Pali-English dictionary
Hāsu°,(of uncertain origin) occurs with hāsa° in combn with °pañña and is customarily taken in meaning “of bright knowledge” (i.e.hāsa+paññā),wise,clever.The syn.javana-pañña points to a meaning like “quickwitted,” thus implying “quick” also in hāsu.Kern,Toev.I.134 puts forth the ingenious expln that hāsu is a “cockneyism” for āsu=Sk.āśu “quick,” which does not otherwise occur in Pāli.Thus his expln remains problematic.-- See e.g.M.III,25; S.I,63; V,376; J.IV,136; VI,255,329.-- Abstr.°tā wisdom S.V,412; A.I,45.(Page 731)
