吉祥如意《俗语佛源》
“吉祥”与“如意”的复合词,谓诸事吉利顺遂。吉祥,梵语Sri,音译作室利、师利,又称为吉羊。据说释尊成道时即坐于吉祥草上,系由吉祥童子刈割并敷陈于释尊的座位上(见《中阿含经》卷五十回、《华严经疏卷》十二等)。如意,为说法及法会之际,讲师手持之器具。此物原为印度古时之爪杖,巴利语为anuruddha(阿那律)系由骨、角、竹、木等所制,柄长三尺,形状如云,或如手形,乃搔背止痒所用,以其能补手不能到之处,而搔抓如意,故称为如意(见《优婆塞戒经》卷五)。后一般多用作祝福之辞。北齐·张成《造像题字》:“为亡父敬造观音像一区,合家大小八口人等共养,吉祥如意”,元·无名氏《赚蒯通》第二折:“再休想吉祥如意,多管是你恶限临逼。”(李君冈)
