十字街头《俗语佛源》
即纵横交叉的热闹街道。见于《五灯会元》卷十九:“大众须知,悟了遇人者,向十字街头与人相逢,却在千峰顶上握手;向千峰顶上相逢,却在十字街头握手。”在禅宗那里,“十字街头”一般指世间,事相等。与“千峰顶上”所指的出世间、理体等相对而言。禅宗还用“十字街头,撞见爷娘”比喻参禅者在繁杂的尘劳和事相中,忽然开悟,顿见清净自性。如清·敬安《解夏小参》:“暑退凉生,各宜抖擞精神,向一念未生前,看个分晓。看得行不知行,坐不知坐,直得识尽情灰,铁壁银山忽尔推倒,便得无量安稳自在。到此时,真如十字街头,撞见爷娘,说不出的忻悦。”把参禅开悟的境界,说得很生动。后多用“十字街头”泛指闹市,闹市口。如艾青《向太阳》诗:“早安啊,你站在十字街头,车辆过去时,举着白袖子的手的警察。”(李明权)
