Pāpadeśanā (पापदेशना, “confessing faults”) represents one of the “sevent supreme offerings” (saptavidhā-anuttarapūjā) as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 14). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (e.g., saptavidhā-anuttarapūjā and Pāpadeśanā). The work is attributed to Nagarguna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
