爱河《俗语佛源》
爱欲浸染人心,使人溺没而不能自拔,故喻为“爱河”。如《华严经》卷二六所说:“随生死流,入大爱河。”又如《楞严经》卷四说:“爱河干枯,令汝解脱。”“爱”在佛教中一般用为贬义,如隋·慧远《大乘义章》卷五所下的定义:“贪染名爱。”佛家主张平等清净的“慈”而摈弃自私污染的“爱”。世俗之“爱”以男女间的情欲为基础,故《圆觉经》指出:“轮回,爱为根本。”当然,爱国、爱父母、爱师长等,佛家也认为是正当的,只是一般不用“爱”这个词去表达而已。后用“爱河”指情欲,爱情。如明·陈汝元《金莲记·媒合》:“一个溺爱河而罔顾,只图暮乐朝欢;一个沉宦海而久迷,空自南奔北走。”又如巴金《灭亡》第四章:“他又沉到爱河里面了。”(李明权)
