“The tremendous danger is that this belief - that genuine happiness comes only from pleasant feelings - becomes a strong motivation to stay closed to anything unpleasant. But by staying closed to all unpleasantness, we also stay closed to our own wellspring of compassion.” - Joseph Goldstein

七喻──法華七喻


Source: 明,一如《三藏法數》字庫

Description: 〔一、火宅喻〕,火譬眾生五濁等苦,宅譬三界。謂三界眾生,為五濁八苦之所煎逼,而不得安隱。猶大宅被火所燒,而不能安居。故以火宅為喻也。(五濁者,劫濁、見濁、煩惱濁、眾生濁、命濁也。三界者,欲界、色界、無色界也。八苦者,生苦、老苦、病苦、死苦、愛別離苦、怨憎會苦、求不得苦、五陰盛苦也。)##〔二、窮子喻〕,謂二乘之人,無大乘功德法財之所莊嚴,猶貧窮之子,缺乏衣食之資,以活身命。故以窮子為喻也。(二乘者,聲聞乘、緣覺乘也。大乘功德法財者,即六度萬行也。)##〔三、藥草喻〕,藥草者,譬三乘人根性也。草有三種,謂小草、中草、大草。小草喻天人。中草喻聲聞、緣覺。大草喻藏教菩薩。藥草雖有大小不同,若蒙雲雨霑潤,皆得敷榮鬱茂,能治眾病。以喻三乘之人,根器雖高下不同,若蒙如來慈雲法雨潤澤,則能成大醫王,普救群品。故以藥草為喻也。(三乘者,聲聞乘、緣覺乘、菩薩乘也。)##〔四、化城喻〕,無而忽有名化;防非禦敵名城。以喻涅槃能防見、思之非,禦生死之敵也。謂如有人欲至寶所,而於中途退還,有聰慧導師,權化作城,暫止息,然後令其得至寶所。以譬二乘之人,初聞大教,中即忘失,流轉生死。故世尊權設方便,令其先斷見、思煩惱,而暫證真空涅槃,以為穌息;然後到於究竟寶所。故以化城為喻也。(梵語涅槃,華言滅度。見、思者,謂意根對法塵起諸分別曰見;眼耳鼻舌身五根,對色聲香味觸五塵,起諸貪愛,曰思也。寶所者,喻實相之理,即究竟大涅槃也。)##〔五、衣珠喻〕,衣珠者,衣中之珠也。謂如有人至親友家,醉酒而臥;親友即以寶珠,繫其衣內,而不覺知,自受貧苦。後因親友告言:汝身衣內,自有無價寶珠,何為衣食乃至如是?其人於是得珠,受用無極。以喻二乘之人,昔於大通佛所,曾下大乘之種,因無明所覆,不能覺了。後因如來方便開示,遂乃得證大乘之果,利樂無窮。故以衣珠為喻也。##〔六、髻珠喻〕,髻珠者,輪王髻中之珠也。輪王喻如來,髻喻二乘權教,珠喻一乘實理。珠在髻中,猶實理為權所隱也。此謂如來於法華會上,開權顯實,授記二乘,而得作佛。猶輪王解髻中之珠,以與功臣。故以此為喻也。##〔七、醫子喻〕,醫喻如來。子喻三乘人也。謂諸子無知,飲他毒藥,心即狂亂,父設方便,令服好藥,以瘥其病。此譬三乘之人,信受權教,不得正道,如來設諸方便,令服大乘法藥,速除苦惱,無復眾患。故以醫子為喻也。
