偈《俗语佛源》
“偈”,梵语Gatha(偈陀或伽他)的省音译,意译为讽颂、重颂,或音义并译为偈颂,通常由固定的字数和音节组成。佛经在用散文(长行)叙述以后,往往又用韵文(偈)概括地复述一遍,以加强读者的印象。“偈”这种体裁对中国文学的发展曾起到有利的影响,形成了一种韵白交替而为人们喜爱的说唱文学。后来有些僧人、文士也喜欢作偈。这种偈实际上是一种简短活泼、寓意深刻的诗歌。《涅槃经·圣行品》上说,释迦牟尼过去世在雪山修道时,曾为了听到“半偈”而舍身。这“半偈”是“生灭灭已,寂灭为乐。”佛陀说法“善巧”,有时能以一句演无量法。半偈虽短,但概括了佛教的全部旨趣。南朝陈·徐陵《傅大士碑》:“割身奉鬼,闻半偈于《涅槃》。”即指为半偈舍身之事。(李明权)
