Hāsapañño, javanapañño: meanings


#1

They have laughing wisdom and swift wisdom, and are endowed with freedom (Ven. Sujato transl).
hāsapañño javanapañño vimuttiyā ca samannāgato SN 55.24.

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. javanapañña points to a meaning like “quick-witted,” 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.
javanapañña - quick-witted
hāsa - laughter; mirth, joy (PTS dictionary, pp 808-809)

What is laughing wisdom and swift wosdom?

We’ll because of AN 3.107
…In the Noble One’s discipline, to laugh excessively, displaying one’s teeth, is childishness…

& idk (I don’t know) common sense i think the smily smily samādhi thing is we’ll… rather obnoxious but more importantly a misnomer, as the PTS entry also has bright wisdom, I would say it makes more sense, have you checked the commentary? Of the top quick wisdom ala suttanta usually refers to understanding of the 4NT, do you agree Swami?
