當耶穌遇上阿彌陀佛---東方的達文西密碼狂想

「極樂國土,七重欄楯,七重羅網,七重行樹,皆是四寶周匝圍繞,是故彼國名為極樂。
                                                                               
又舍利弗。極樂國土,有七寶池,八功德水,充滿其中,池底純以金沙布地。四邊階道,
                                                                               
金、銀、琉璃、玻璃合成。上有樓閣,亦以金、銀、琉璃、玻璃、硨磲、赤珠、瑪瑙而
                                                                               
嚴飾之。」

                                                                                
                                                                               
但是我念到這段的時候就產生了疑問:
                                                                               
「若有善男子,善女人,聞說阿彌陀佛,執持名號:若一日,若二日,
                                                                               
若三日,若四日,若五日,若六日,若七日,一心不亂。其人臨命終時,阿彌陀佛,
                                                                               
與諸聖眾,現在其前。」

                                                                                
                                                                               
為什麼是七日?
                                                                               
我們知道一個禮拜有七天,禮拜一到禮拜天,難道阿彌陀佛知道同樣的東西念了一個
                                                                               
禮拜就會很煩嗎?禮拜禮拜,禮拜可是基督教的用語耶,難道阿彌陀佛跟耶穌基督
 
早就串好了?
                                                                               
這實在很有趣,因為我很怕我念經念個半死,後來才發現阿彌陀佛跟耶穌聯手把我
                                                                               
耍的團團轉。
                                                                               
                                                                               
在基督教的觀點來說,一個星期有七天,是出自於聖經創世紀第一章與第二章,
                                                                               
記載上帝的創造工作,說祂第一天創造了光,第二天造空氣和水,第三天造陸地、
                                                                               
海和各類植物,第四天造日、月、星辰和定晝夜、節令、日子和年歲,第五天造各
                                                                               
類動物,第六天上帝按著祂的形象造人,第七天創造工作完畢,上帝歇了祂一切的工
                                                                               
作,安息了,並賜福給第七日,定為聖日。
                                                                               
                                                                               
結果沒想到,周文王也來參一腳。司馬遷說:「文王拘而演周易。」
                                                                               
周文王被紂王關在羑里的時候,很無聊,就寫了易經,沒想到大家心有靈犀,
                                                                               
好像講好一般。
 
易經第二十四卦卦詞:「復:亨。出入無疾,朋來無咎。反復其道,七日來復,利有
                                                                               
攸往。」(
復卦是坤上震下)
                                                                               
七日來復,意思就是七天又重新一次,所以周文王也知道禮拜天完之後接禮拜一,
                                                                               
要重新一次?
                                                                               
                                                                               
再來我來說個佛陀老婆的故事。
                                                                               
相傳佛陀曾娶親,在佛陀出家前他的老爸淨飯王很怕他去出家,因為他是太子,
                                                                               
所以就幫他娶了老婆,希望用美色留住他,不要去出家。
                                                                               
但是悉達多(佛陀的俗名)還是想要去出家,於是他就趁某個晚上,偷偷的離開皇宮,
                                                                               
拋下妻子就去求道了,只是奇怪的是,當在悉達多離開皇宮之後,他的老婆竟然懷孕了,
                                                                               
還懷孕六年,產下一子名為羅(目侯)羅,他的族人跟淨飯王覺得很怪,也很生氣,
                                                                               
怎麼可能老公不在老婆還懷孕的?就開始懷疑悉達多妻子的貞節。
 
悉達多妻子不堪受辱,她請求淨飯王挖一火坑,就在這個熊熊烈焰的火坑前面,對天發誓
                                                                               
說:「我兒子羅(目侯)羅如果真是悉達多太子指腹成胎,我母子二人跳入火坑安然無恙
                                                                               
;如果不是這樣,使我母子二人,當下燒死。」發誓之後,當下英勇地跳下火坑,正在
                                                                               
這千鈞一髮之際,頓時間從烈焰熊熊的火光裡湧現一朵紅色蓮花,托住她和
                                                                               
羅(目侯)羅,母子二人安全無恙,精神煥發。
                                                                               
                                                                               
這個橋段是不是有點印象?聖母瑪利亞也是無垢受孕,保持貞節的情況下,
                                                                               
在馬槽產下耶穌。
                                                                               
                                                                               
更奇特的是,悉達多的老婆,跟基督教的崇拜對象一樣,叫耶輸。
                                                                               
                                                                               
大乘金剛般若寶懺卷下(也就是所謂的金剛經)香讚:
                                                                               
「栴檀海岸。爐爇名香。耶輸母子兩無殃。火內得清涼。至心今將。一炷遍十方。」
 
以上。
  
 
其實我並非想要塑造一個各宗教的崇拜對象湊在一桌打麻將和樂融融的景象,
 
而是在閱讀的過程中發現了這些有趣的巧合,
  
更能讓我們讚嘆造物者與大自然的偉大。
 
謝謝收看。
