穷吃素,老看经《俗语佛源》
“吃素”即“素食”。《汉书·霍光传》:“居道上不素食。”颜师古注云;“素食,菜食无肉也。”本谓居丧不肉食。后特指佛教徒持戒不食鱼肉荤腥。如唐·颜师古《匡俗正谬》卷三所说:“今俗谓桑门(佛教僧侣)斋食为素食。”原先,小乘教徒仍可吃“三净肉”,即不见杀、不闻杀和不为我而杀。大乘教对出家人禁一切肉食。“看经”即阅读佛经。佛门常劝信士“读诵大乘,近善知识”。佛经称为“法宝”、“法身舍利”。看经是佛教徒产生“正信”、“正见”并走上“正道”的主要途径。“穷吃素,老看经”应是世俗的一种偏见。不过,这句俗语的语词意义是说,环境能够影响人的行为。如元·杨瞿《刘行首》第二折:“你不知道闲官清,丑妇贞,穷吃素,老看经。我如今青春之际,我怎生出的家!”(李明权)
