Term Definition
上乘《俗语佛源》
乘,即交通工具的意思,比喻能将众生从烦恼的此岸运载到觉悟的彼岸的教法而言。上乘,梵语Mahayana的意译。大乘的异名,亦称“大衍”。与“小乘”相对。印度世亲《摄大乘论》卷一:“如是三藏,上乘下乘有差别故,则成三藏。”俗指上品、上等的人或事理、物品。如《花月痕》第十五回:“采秋言道,‘人之相知,贵相知心,落了言诠,已非上乘。’”(文贤)
上供《俗语佛源》
指在诸佛、祖师圣像前,备供物、圣膳等物供养。《敕修百丈清规》卷四:“圣僧侍者,贵有道心,斋粥二时,上供,鸣下堂椎。”后泛指人们用物品祭祖或敬神。如曹禺《北京人》第一幕:“快穿好袍子马褂,给祖先上供去。”又如《二十年目睹之怪现状》四九回:“一样一样的菜拿上来,只摆一摆,便撤了下去,就和上供一般谁还吃得下。”(文贤)
上天无路,入地无门《俗语佛源》
语本《续灯录》卷十一:“进前即触途成滞,退后即噎气填胸,直得上天无路,入地无门。”原指参禅过程中所遇到的进退无路、左右为难的困境。后俗语用“上天无路、入地无门”形容走投无路,陷入绝境。如《警世通言·宋小官团圆破毡笠》:“(宋金)情知为丈人所弃,上天无路,入地无门,不觉痛切于心,放声大哭。”(李明权)
