借花献佛《俗语佛源》
佛说法时,诸天散花。佛国净土也有昼夜雨花的祥瑞。释迦佛涅槃时,大众持香花、宝幢等供养。以献花、焚香礼敬佛等三宝,称为“香花供养”,是佛门习见的仪规。“借花献佛”典出《过去现在因果经》卷一。释迦佛过去世为善慧仙人,闻普光佛出世,欲觅名花供养。遇一位青衣,密持七枝莲花而过,莲花感善慧之诚,踊出瓶外,青衣大惊。善慧“为欲成就一切种智,度脱无量众生”,愿以五百钱购取五枝莲花。青衣见其诚心,即以五花相赠,愿结生死之缘,又“请寄二花以献佛前,使我生死不失此愿”。善慧旋至普光佛所,“即散五茎,皆住空中,化成台;后散二茎,亦止空中,夹佛两边”。普光佛悬记善慧当来作佛,号释迦牟尼。后因以“借花献佛”比喻借别人之物去做人情。如元·萧德祥《杀狗劝夫》楔子:“既然哥哥有酒,我们借花献佛,与哥哥上寿咱!”(李明权)
