参禅《俗语佛源》
禅,梵语dhyana,意译为“静虑”、“思维修”等。谓心专著一境,正审思虑。一般把“禅”和“定”连在一起,称为“禅定”,或把“参禅”理解为“坐禅入定”。如老舍《二马》第五段四:“李子荣纹丝不动的在那里坐着,好像老和尚参禅那么稳当。”后来,禅学之禅的含义又由禅定扩大为定慧,进而引申为禅宗之禅。禅宗之禅,强调明心见性,重视智慧。六祖慧能有偈云:“生来坐不卧,死去卧不坐;一具臭骨头,何以立功课!”(《坛经》)可见慧能为代表的南宗并不强调传统的坐禅。在禅宗那里,参禅就是参悟,通过参破公案、话头、玄关等,而顿悟真理。唐·玄觉《永嘉证道歌》谓:“游江海,涉山川,寻师访道为参禅。”表明参禅者必须由明师指点,多方请教,不可盲参瞎修,以免误入邪途,成为“野狐禅”。又宋·苏轼《夜直玉堂携李之仪端书诗至夜半书其后》诗:“暂借好诗消永夜,每逢佳处辄参禅。”意谓领悟微妙的诗意。(李明权)
