飞天夜叉《俗语佛源》
梵语Yaksa,音译为夜叉、药叉等。佛经中常提到的一种勇健捷疾的食人鬼。唐·窥基《法华经玄赞》卷二指出:“夜叉,此云勇健,飞腾空中。”故亦称“飞天夜叉”。如《楞严经》卷八说:“即为飞仙大力鬼王,飞天夜叉,地行罗刹,游于四天,所行无碍。”飞天夜叉是壁画中常见的形象。如唐·李绰《尚书故实》谓:“后数日,其父母见在高塔之上,梯而取之,则神如痴,久之方语,云见如壁画飞天夜叉者,将入塔中。”又如宋·洪迈《夷坚甲志·飞天夜叉》谓:“他日,入神祠,见壁画飞天夜叉。”夜叉食人,亦译为“能啖鬼”。因此,民间也有飞天夜叉吃人的传说。明·沈德潜在《野获编·鬼怪》中说,福建抽税太监高寀信方士胡言,欲“食小儿脑千余”,“此等俱飞天夜叉化身也”。清·袁枚在《续新齐谐·飞僵》中说:“凡僵尸久则能飞,不复藏棺中,……又久则成飞天夜叉。”实属无稽之谈。(李明权)
飞蛾投火《俗语佛源》
多用以比喻自寻死路,自取灭亡。唐·道世《法苑珠林》卷五五引《涅槃经》说:“汝等今者兴建是意,犹如飞蛾投于火。”宋·赜藏主辑《古尊宿语录大随开山神照禅师》:“岂比飞蛾投火,自伤自坏。”后为俗语,如元·杨显之《潇湘雨》第二折:“他走了,我一向寻他不着,他今日自来投到,岂不是飞蛾扑火,自讨死吃的。”(宽忍)
