Commentary

Philological commentary

There certainly is a relation between pakacāṃ and pakaccit. pakaccit looks like the Tocharian form of a Sanskrit preterite participle (cf. nermit, anumodit, cotit, etc). Thus it seems best to translate it as 'donated'. This also suggests that pakaccāṃ really is originally a Sanskrit term.
