牛頭旃檀


Source: 佛光電子大辭典

Description: 梵語 gośīrsa-candana。檀香木之一,乃旃檀中之最具香氣者。又作牛頭栴檀。產於印度,為常綠樹,幹高約零點九公尺,其材芳香,呈灰黃色,或赤銅色,可用以雕刻,或與根研為粉末,以供焚香,或製香油。昔時優填王曾命人以此木雕刻佛像,迄今著名。另據新華嚴經卷六十七所載,牛頭旃檀產於南印度摩羅耶山(梵 Malaya)西南之摩羅耶,故又稱摩羅耶產(梵 Malaya-ja)。然據正法念處經卷六十九載,鬱單越有十大山,其第五為高聚山,有五大峰,其第二峰名銀峰,盛產牛頭旃檀,以此山峰狀似牛頭,故稱所產之旃檀為牛頭旃檀。〔玄應音義卷二十三、慧琳音義卷三、經律異相卷六〕(參閱「檀像」6444)
