药医不死病,佛度有缘人《俗语佛源》
众生要得道度化,出离生死苦海,必须要同佛法“有缘”,才能“感应道交”。这个“缘”,包括善根、慧根,慕道向善之心和勇猛精进的精神等。什么人同佛法“无缘”呢?这就是经上常说的“八难”。“八难”可以分作四类:一是苦障之难,包括地狱、饿鬼、畜生和盲聋喑哑。二是乐障之难,包括北洲和长寿天。该二处的众生寿长多乐,但缺乏智慧,甚至误以为已入“涅槃”。三是恶增之难,即“世智辨聪”,自以为是,妄执坚固。四是善微之难,即生在“佛前佛后”,不知佛法。值此“八难”者,便于佛法无缘。灵丹妙药,只能医治命不该绝的病症;同样,佛法广大,只能度化有缘的人。这就是俗语“药医不死病,佛度有缘人”的含义。如《醒世恒言》第十回:“先生,常言道:‘药医不死病,佛度有缘人。’你且不要拘泥古法,尽着自家意思,大了胆医去,或者他命不该绝,就好了也未可知。”(李明权)
