螺蛳壳里做道场《俗语佛源》
在狭窄简陋处做成复杂的场面和事情,今谓之“螺蛳壳里做道场”。道场是梵语mandala(曼荼罗)的意译,或译为“坛”,指供奉佛菩萨像,依据一定的要求布置并举行法会的宗教场所。清·顾张思《土风录》卷二说:“延请僧道作法事曰作道场”。佛教中有名的法会道场有水陆道场、慈悲道场等。释迦牟尼成道的地方,称为菩提道场,在中印度摩揭陀国尼连禅河侧的菩提树下。(参见《大唐西域记》卷八)道场亦泛指修行佛法的场所乃至喻指所修的佛法,如《维摩诘经·菩萨品》:“众生是道场,知无我故;一切法是道场,知诸法空故。”此外,在隋炀帝时,曾诏改佛寺之名,亦称道场。在古例中如南朝宋·谢灵运《山居赋》:“欣见素以抱朴,果甘露于道场”。(李明权)
