寺庙《俗语佛源》
谓佛寺。如《晋书·佛图澄传》说:“百姓因澄故多奉佛,皆营造寺庙,竞相出家。”印度的佛寺原有两种:一种名僧伽蓝摩(sangharama),略称伽蓝,指出家人共修行的园林、道场。另一种名阿兰若(aranya)意为空闲处,系统一人或两三人隐居修处的简陋处。中国汉地建佛寺,始于汉末洛阳的白马寺。“寺”原为古代官舍、衙署之称。汉明帝时,印度僧人摄摩腾、竺法兰以白马驮经至洛阳,舍于鸿胪寺,后因以称第一座佛寺为“白马寺”。至于“庙”,原为宗庙,系祭祀先祖神位的场所,后亦用于称佛寺。如巴金《砂丁》:“前面远远地有一座高大的庙宇。”在宋代,大的称为“寺”,小的称为“院”。到近代,又分为两类:大的称为“十方丛林”,小的称为“子孙庙”、“小庙”。俗语中一般把“寺”和“庙”连称为“寺庙”,也称为“寺院”。如孙犁《关于铁木前传的通信》:“徒步走到那里,在寺院听一整夜的佛号,她们也跟着念。”(李明权)
