丈二和尚摸不着头脑《俗语佛源》
“丈二和尚”指寺庙中比较高大的诸天、罗汉等塑像。俗用“和尚”来称呼罗汉等,也是可以的。例如,佛经上常有这一类话:“(佛)与大比丘众千二百五十人俱。”“大比丘”就是大和尚,其中包括罗汉等佛弟子。显然,人们无法用手触摸到高大的塑像,因而用“丈二和尚摸不着头脑”比喻弄不明情况,搞不清底细。如明·周楫《西湖二集》卷二八:“丈二长的和尚,摸不着头脑。”(李明权)
丈六金身《俗语佛源》
佛有三身:法身、报身和化身。一般称佛的化身为“丈六金身”,如宋·刘昌诗《芦浦笔记·佛牙》谓:“常闻佛号丈六金身。”又如元·李翀《日闻录》:“‘佛,父母所生血肉之躯也,何为而有丈六金身?’曰:‘既成而变也。’佛像通常是按“化身”而塑造的,所以也称为“丈六金身”。其说本于《后汉书·西域传·天竺》,书中记载:汉明帝梦见一位长大的金人,顶有光明,便问群臣。有人告诉他:“西方有神,名曰佛,其形长丈六尺面黄金色。”明帝于是派使者到印度去考察佛法,并在国内绘制“丈六金身”的佛像。一般认为,这是佛法东传的开始。佛经中也有关于“丈六金身”的说法。《观无量寿经》谓:“阿弥陀佛神通如意,于十方国变现自在。或现大身,满虚空中;或现小身,丈六、八尺。所现之形皆真金色。”(李明权)
