胁不沾席《俗语佛源》
胁,指身体两边从腋下至腰上的部分。“胁不沾席”即不躺下睡觉,形容勤勉刻苦,废寝忘食。例如明·宋濂《桐江大师行业碑铭》:“师益加奋励,胁不沾席者数载。朝叩夕咨,所以悟疑辨惑者,无一发遗憾。”此例形容僧人昼夜精进修持。从特定意义来说,僧人定力好的,可以趺坐过夜而“不倒单(床单)”。胁不沾席一语出自胁尊者(梵语波奢)。据说,胁尊者居母胎六十余年才出生,诞生时便须发皓白。他清净寡欲,将近八十岁时出家学佛法。有年青僧人嘲笑他年老昏庸。胁尊者遂发愤自誓:“我若不通三藏理,不断三界欲,得六神通,具八解脱,终不以胁而至于席!”从此,他白天诵经,晚上入定,经三年,实现了自己的誓言。时人敬称他为“胁尊者”。中国禅宗把胁尊者列为“西天二十八祖”中的第十祖。(可参见唐·玄奘《大唐西域记·建驮罗国》、《付法藏传》卷五)。(李明权)
