顽石点头《俗语佛源》
喻说理透彻,使悟性全无的人也心服。顽石即指无知觉的石头。全句应为“生公说法,顽石点头”。生公指晋末义学高僧竺道生,他为鸠摩罗什的高足,悟解非凡。当时《涅槃经》只部分译出,传入南方,其中说除一阐提(断绝善根的人)外皆有佛性。道生则坚持认为“一阐提人皆得成佛”,遂被守旧者目为邪说,摈出僧团。道生因入今苏州虎丘山,传说他曾聚石为徒,讲《涅槃经》,说到一阐提有佛性,群石皆为点头(见《佛祖统纪》卷二十六、三十六)。现在虎丘山尚有“生公说法台”和“点头石”。以后全部《涅槃经》传到南京,其中果然说“一阐提人有佛性”,大众这才佩服他的卓越见识。于是顽石点头的传说便不胫而走。后来以此形容说理透彻,使人不得不心服。《五灯会元》卷十七:“何故双眉本来自横,鼻孔本来自直?直饶说得天花乱坠,顽石点头。”梁启超《新中国未来记》第三回:“哥哥,你请拿至诚去感动他波,只怕把泰山顽石说到点头还容易些哩!”(常正)
