合掌《俗语佛源》
合掌又称“合十”,谓两手十指相合。原为印度表示致敬的礼仪,犹如中国传统以拱手为敬,现代通行以握手为敬。佛家沿用合掌表示一心归敬。如《西游记》第五二回:“那比丘尼至佛前合掌道:‘孙悟空有事,要见如来。’”《日用规范》介绍合掌之法:“合掌,手指不得参差,须当胸,高低得所。”《永平清规》谓:“合掌,指头当对鼻端。头低,指头低;头直,指头直。”又有一种合指而不合掌的方式,称为“莲花合掌”。隋·智顗《观音义疏》解释合掌的意义:“外国合掌为敬。手本二边,今合为一,表不敢散诞,真至一心。”今亦泛指虔敬。如冰心《寄小读者》十五:“我无有言说,我只合掌赞美你们的纯洁与伟大。”在俗语中,合掌的用法较多。如明·陈汝元《金莲记·媒合》:“应难量,浮萍踪迹多漂荡,何时合掌。”此指相会,会合。又如清·李渔《怜香伴·倩媒》:“这话说来有些合掌。”此指符合,相符。此外,旧时诗文对偶词句意义类同、相近,谓之“犯合掌”。如明·谢榛《四溟诗话》卷一指出:“耿伟《赠田家翁诗》:‘蚕屋朝寒闭,田家昼雨闲。’此写出村居景象。但上句拙,‘朝’、‘昼’二字合掌。”(李明权)
