Pratibādhaka (प्रतिबाधक) refers to the “transgressor (of the true dharma)”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “[...] At that time, sixty koṭis of Bodhisattvas, having stood up from the congregation, joined their palms, paid homage to the Lord, and then uttered these verses in one voice: ‘[...] (215) Immediately after seeing the transgressor of the true dharma (saddharma-pratibādhaka), even from afar, we will show friendliness to him that he show not anger towards us. (216) Being restrained in word and deed, we will protect them as much as possible, and never reproach them for being established in a particular sinful activity. [...]’”.
