Term Definition
化缘《俗语佛源》
本来是指佛、菩萨、高僧等在世间示现的教化因缘。释迦牟尼与我们这个世界和众生“有缘”,一生教化不懈,就是他的“化缘”。又如唐·白居易《上弘和尚石塔碑序》说“随顺化缘,故坐甘露坛而誓众,主盟者二十年。”这是高僧的化缘。俗亦称僧侣乞食为化缘。如宋·洪迈《夷坚志》卷一谓:“元晖,近村王大子也,即作僧,为街坊化缘。”原来,佛门僧侣比丘,意为乞士,也就是以乞食为生的人。佛教戒律谓:僧侣为了维持生命而乞食,便是“净命自居”,可以“省事修道”,“破一切骄慢”。僧侣募化乞食,广结佛缘,故称化缘。推而广之,为了佛事而举办的一切募化活动,也叫化缘。(李明权)
化身《俗语佛源》
为了方便地度化众生,佛、菩萨应化变现出各类众生的形象,佛、菩萨三身(法身、报身、化身)之一。隋·慧远《大乘义章》卷十九:“佛随众生现种种形,或人或天,或龙或鬼,如是一切,同世色像,不为佛形,名为化身。”五代梁时奉化岳林寺布袋和尚名契此,临终说偈曰:“弥勒真弥勒,分身百千亿。时时示时人,时人自不识。”于是人们遂称布袋和尚为弥勒菩萨的化身。明太祖朱元璋曾令全国寺庙供弥勒像,其造型亦即布袋和尚的形像,影响至今。现称事物之非原本者,也叫化身。元·鲜子枢《题赵模拓本兰亭后》诗:“兰亭化身千百亿,贞观赵模推第一。”(常正)
