杖锡《俗语佛源》
即执持锡杖。锡杖是僧人所用的法器之一,上有铁棬,棬上有环,木柄,振动时有响声。为何叫锡杖?因取“锡锡”作响而得名,并非锡杖一定要用锡来制作不可。在古代,僧人出门云游,手持锡杖。南朝梁代慧皎《高僧传·康僧会》:“僧会欲使道(指佛法)振江左,兴立图寺,乃杖锡东游。”唐·杜甫亦有“杖锡何来此”的诗句。由于僧人手持锡杖云游,故又称为“杖锡客”。锡杖又名“智杖”或“德杖”。古时僧人持侦缉云游,有两种用处:一是乞食时不说话,振动锡杖作响,使施主知道有僧乞食;二是作防卫武器,驱赶牛、犬,以免伤害自己。但是锡杖传入中国之后,却完全神圣化了,使其成为宗教仪式上的陈设品。现在只在及其隆重的仪式上,主法僧人才使用它,这就完全失去了锡杖原来的意义。锡杖的形式,也与原来印度的锡杖不一样。唐·义净《南海寄归内法传》卷四说:“西方所持锡杖,头上唯有一股铁棬,……其环或圆或匾,屈合中间,可容大指,或六或八穿安股上,铜铁任情。”中国的锡杖,是“头安四股”,义净认为这与本制不合。在古诗中如清·孙枝蔚《劝酒歌》一:“正逢老僧锡杖来,见我相劝学参禅。”(无名氏)
