N: PTS gives this example: accaya.m deseti: to confess a transgression.
and also: accaya.m pa.tigga.nhaati: to accept (the confession of) a
sin, to pardon a sin.
Looking more closely, I see the problem of the genetive.
I think that desentassa is genetive pertaining to the transgression
of the other person.
He does not accept the confession of the transgression of the (other)
person who confesses it.
The Pali is shorter.

- Dear Bryan and Nina,
thanks for your corrections and notes. I will rewrite one affected sentence as follow:
Samatho, bhikkhave, bhaavito kamatthamanubhoti?
tranquility / monks / developed / what-benefit-achieves
O monks, what good does developed tranquility accomplish?
kamatthamanubhoti = ka.m atthamanubhoti.
- ka (pronoun) what?
- atthamanubhoti = attha.m anubhoti (phrase) achieves benefit.
-- attha (m) benefit, gain, profit.
-- anubhoti (v) gets, achieves.
I will also rewrite the last sentence as follow:
Iti kho, bhikkhave, raagaviraagaa cetovimutti, avijjaaviraagaa pa~n~naavimuttii"ti.
thus / indeed / monks / detached of greed / release of mind / detached of ignorance / release of wisdom
And indeed, O monks, absence of greed (is) the release of the mind, absence of ignorance (is) the release of wisdom."

> attamanubhoti is an idiom meaning "to fare well, to have a (good) result" (PED s.v. attha), so I would translate something like, "What is the (good) result of tranquility that has been cultivated?" or "What is the result of developed tranquility?"
N: P.T.S. has: what profit results... A.t.tha means aim but also profit or benefit.
