Pāpman (पाप्मन्) refers to “evil”, and is mentioned in verse 2.16 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Pāpman, lit. “evil”, has been rendered by mi-śis, prop, “misfortune”. According to III.1.1, pāpman is a synonym of roga and other such words as signify disease; its Tibetan equivalent is given there as sdig-pa.—mi-des in NP appears to be a misspelling.
