Sarvadoṣa (सर्वदोष) refers to “all one’s defects”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “[...] May all my tasks, (including) the work I have started, will do and have done, be successfully accomplished; may all my defects [i.e., sarvadoṣa] be destroyed and my intentions be satisfied by (this) offering of bali and flowers. May the task that has been started be accomplished by the grace of Śiva and Śakti, by the power of the three Vidyās and by the grace of the venerable mother Kujā”.
