回光返照《俗语佛源》
从字面的本来意义看,指太阳刚落到水平线下时,由于光线反射作用,天空中又短时发亮的自然现象。禅宗语录中多见此语,如《镇州临济慧照禅师语录》(唐代临济义玄禅师谥慧照):“你言下便自回光返照,更不别求,知身心与祖佛不别,当下无事,方名得法……据我见处,实无许多般道理,要用便用,不用便休。”《宗镜录》卷二三:“若舍已徇尘,是名违背。能回光返照,随顺真知,境智冥合,是真供养。”“光”指智光或心光,“返照”即契如理之心,后多用“回光返照”比喻人临死前神志忽然清醒或兴奋,也用以比喻旧事物灭亡前表面上短暂的兴旺。如《红楼梦》第九十八回:“黛玉白日已经昏晕过去,却心头口中一丝微气不断……此时李纨见黛玉略缓,明知是回光返照的光景。”又郭沫若《十批判书·吕不韦与秦王政的批判》:“他形成了那样一个短时期的中央集权的奴隶社会,由奴隶制而言,可以比为回光返照。”(禹振声)
