叶落归根《俗语佛源》
“树高千尺,叶落归根”,已成为客居他乡的人对故土的怀念而发出的心声,也是客居他乡的人终要回到本乡本土的心愿和归宿。此语出自《坛经》,惠能大师将入涅槃时,曾对他的门人说他想回归新洲老家,要门人们迅速给他准备舟楫,弟子们向六祖苦苦哀求挽留。惠能大师说:“诸佛出现,犹示涅槃,有来必去,理亦常然;吾此形骸,归必有所。”六袓又对门人说:“叶落归根,来时无口。”后来把“叶落归根”比喻事物总有一定的归宿。现侨居美国的李汉魂先生,1934年8月曾为供养六袓真身的曹溪南华寺撰书一联:“衣钵真传,明心见性;菩提无树,落叶归根。”1982年6月4日,李汉魂先生不远万里回国观赏旧联,感慨万千。由此,弥见他乡客子眷恋故土的綦切心情!(无名氏)
