缘起《俗语佛源》
是佛学的核心理论之一。经中关于“缘起”的论证很丰富,各宗派也有不同的解释,如业感缘起、赖耶缘起、如来藏缘起、一真法界缘起等。佛家很重视“缘起观智”,所谓“深入缘起,断诸邪见”(《维摩诘经·佛国品》)。概括地说,事物(有为法)处在因果联系的网络中,依特定的条件而产生,因相互的作用而变化,称为“缘起”。唯其如此,任何事物都没有独立不变的自性,称为“缘起性空”。“缘起”说明现象是存在的,而本质是“空”的,也说明了没有造物主可以主宰宇宙、人生。在佛籍中,有一种阐明编述始末的书,称为“缘起”,如《付法藏缘起》。后亦用以代称某些序言,甚至泛指一事物产生的缘由。如清·张岱《陶庵梦忆》卷六:“凡四阅月而成,余为作缘起。”此外,在敦煌变文中,有一类演述佛经故事的通俗文体也称为“缘起”。如《丑女缘起》、《目连缘起》。(李明权)
