attaṭṭha-pañña

, mfn. (atta-ṭṭha [often spelt
attattha, q. v.] + paññā), knowing or looking after
one's own profit, selfish; Sn 75 (= attani ṭhitā etesaṁ
paññā, attānaṁ yeva olokenti na aññaṁ, Pj; B,
Nidd, and Nidd-a attattha; v. r. diṭṭhaṭṭhapañña,
Pj ib.); Ja III 495,14* (= attano atthāya paññā,
paraṁ anoloketvā attani yeva vā ṭhitā etesam paññā,
Ct.); IV 56,24* (= attano atthāya eva yassa paññā,
Ct.); the Ct.s thus explain attaṭṭha now as att'-aṭṭha,
now as atta-ṭṭha (°ṭṭha — ṭhita).
