方丈《俗语佛源》
佛教原用以指禅寺的长老或住持所居之处。如《维摩诘经》载,身为菩萨的维摩诘居士,其卧室一丈见方,但能广容大众。禅寺比附此说,故名。至唐代,怀海(720-814)建立住持制度后,方丈专指住持的居室,并用为一般寺院内主持僧的尊称。《景德传灯录》卷六载怀海所制《禅门规式》:“既为化主,即处于方丈,同净名(即维摩诘译名)之室,非私寝之室也。”《西游记》第四四回:“打扫干净方丈,安寝一宿。”以后道教全真派亦采用此名,指道院的主持人和他居住的静室。(常正)
方便《俗语佛源》
梵语paya的意译,犹言善巧、权宜,是利益他人、化度众生的智慧和方式,“方便”与“真实”相对而言,亦即随时设教、随机应变的“权智”。语本《法华经·方便品》佛谓:“吾从成佛以来,种种因缘,种种譬喻,广演言教,无数方便,引导众生令离所执。”经疏对方便的解释很多,如谓“理正曰方,言巧称便”;“众生所缘之域曰方,如来适化之法称便”。方便是导向真实之法。如唐·白居易《僧院花》诗:“细看便是《华严》偈,方便风开智慧花。”后因以泛指机会,便利。如唐·韩偓《偶见》诗:“小叠红笺书恨字,与奴方便寄卿卿。”天台宗认为,《法华经》的要义是“开权显实”。隋·智者大师谓:“开方便门,示真实相。”(《法华经文句》卷三)凡用善方式说法,亦谓之“开方便门”。《景德传灯录》卷二一:“海众云臻,请师开方便门,亦真实相。”后来称提供机会便利为“大开方便之门”。如明·冯维敏《僧尼共犯》第四折:“谁想巡捕老爷大开方便之门,放俺回俗,便成配偶。”(李明权)
