Term Definition
称心如意《俗语佛源》
如意,梵语阿那律Aniruddha的音译,即爪杖,是出家僧侣百一用具之一。柄端作手指形,替手不能到之处搔痒,所以名为如意。又有柄端作“心”字形的,如《释氏要览》卷中说:“‘如意’之制,盖心之表也;故菩萨皆执之,状如云叶,如此方篆书‘心’字故。”同书又说:“今讲僧尚执之,多私记节文祝词于柄,备于勿忘,要时手执目对,如人之意,故名如意”。这一种如意,即如旧时官吏的手版备于遗忘的笏子。但佛家还有如意杖、如意珠、如意轮等不同名词和用具。近代多以玉石制作,长一二尺,柄端作“芝”形、或“云”形以供玩赏,取其名为吉祥,又称吉祥如意。今以“称心满意”谓心满意足,如愿以偿。(常正)
