心品—身體發臭的比丘


 

 

人生苦短,
此身不久將意識全無地躺在地上,
一如無用的木材。

 

Before long, alas, this body, deprived of consciousness, will lie on the earth, discarded like a useless log.

---法句經

 

法句經故事集:

普提珈塔提舍比丘得到佛陀給他的觀想題目後,努力禪修,但卻生起病來。身上首先長滿小疔,然後變成大的傷口,後來這些傷口破裂開,他的袈裟受到膿血的玷污,而變得黏膩膩的,身體也開始發臭,因此獲得普提珈塔提舍的稱呼,意思就是發臭的提舍比丘,其他的比丘因此棄他於不顧。

佛陀知道他悲慘的狀況,也預知他馬上就要證得阿拉漢果了,就到他停留的火邊去,並且親自燒了一些熱水,然後到他躺著的地方,抓住床沿。這時候,其他比丘才聚集過來,佛陀就叫他們把他抬到外面去洗滌身體,同時也一併洗滌、曬乾袈裟。這時候,他的身心煥然一新,就繫念在前。

佛陀站在床頭,告誡他說,生命消失時,身體就像木頭一樣,一無是處,而被放在地上。佛陀說法後,他就證得阿拉漢果,不久之後,也入滅了。佛陀要其他比丘將他火化,將骨灰納入浮圖中。


有人請問佛陀,普提珈塔提舍比丘的身體為何會發臭?
佛陀說普提珈塔提舍比丘的某一前世是個殘酷的捕禽人,經常設陷阱捕捉鳥類。抓到之後,就折斷鳥的翅膀和腳,防止它們飛走。由於這些惡業,所以今生身體發臭。
佛陀最後說:「比丘們!你們出家為比丘,父母無法照顧你們,若不彼此照顧,誰會照顧你們?請記住,誰看護比丘,就等於看護佛陀!」

 

 

 


After taking a subject of meditation from the Buddha, Thera Tissa was diligently practising meditation when he was afflicted with a disease. Small boils appeared all over his body and these developed into big sores. When these sores burst, his upper and lower robes became sticky and stained with pus and blood, and his whole body was stinking. For this reason, he was known as Putigattatissa, Tissa the thera with stinking body.

As the Buddha surveyed the universe with the light of his own intellect, the thera appeared in his vision. He saw the sorrowful state of the thera, who had been abandoned by his resident pupils on account of his stinking body. At the same time, he also knew that Tissa would soon attain arahatship. So, the Buddha proceeded to the fire-shed, close to the place where the thera was staying. There, he boiled some water, and then going, to where the thera was lying down, took hold of the edge of the couch. It was then only that the resident pupils gathered round the thera, and as instructed by the Buddha, they carried the thera to the fire-shed, where he was washed and bathed. While he was being bathed, his upper and lower robes were washed and dried. After the bath, the thera became fresh in body and mind and soon developed one-pointedness of concentration. Standing at the head of the couch, the Buddha said to him that this body when devoid of life would be as useless as a log and would be laid on the earth.
