吃十方《俗语佛源》
出家人靠信徒布施、化缘度日,俗称“吃十方”。此外,出家人云游各处,可在十方丛林中挂单,免费食宿,这是“吃十方”的又一层意思。佛经上称东南西北、四维上下的空间为“十方”或“十方世界”。如《无量寿经》卷下:“佛告阿难,无量寿佛威神无极,十方世界无量无边不可思议,诸佛如来,莫不称叹。”又,接待四方僧人的寺院及其庙产等,称为“十方丛林”或“十方常住”。《翻译名义集·寺塔坛幢》谓:“十方常住:如僧家供僧常食,体通四方。”如《二刻拍案惊奇》卷一:“寺僧平时吃着十方,此际料没有凌波出险、载米上门的了。”又如吴晗《朱元璋传》第一章二:“和尚吃十方,善男信女的布施吃不完。”又,靠和尚吃饭,俗谓之“吃十一方”,亦用作调侃话。如《品花宝鉴》第五十回:“仲清等不好再说,只得谢了一声说:‘我们竟吃到十一方了!’”(李明权)
