吹大法螺《俗语佛源》
法螺,是佛教徒举行宗教仪式时吹奏的一种乐器。螺即螺贝,生长在大海,俗称海螺,系软体动物,肉可食,螺头穿孔吹之,声大而远。吹大法螺或吹法螺,比喻佛说法广被众生。螺声勇猛,表示大法之雄健。又吹螺表示号令三军,比喻佛说法降魔。“吹大法螺”一语,出自多种佛经。如《法华经·序品》亦说:“吹大法螺,击大法鼓。”《金光明经·赞叹品》亦说:“吹大法螺,击大法鼓,燃大法炬,雨胜法雨。”这种法螺,现在我国汉传佛教寺院做佛事,一般不用了,但藏传佛教寺院举行隆重的宗教仪式时,仍然吹奏这种乐器。由于法螺中空声大,距离很远的地方都可以听到。所以后用以比喻吹牛皮、空口说大话为“吹大法螺”。(无名氏)
