repost: 從佛法角度解讀道家神仙

Written By Frank M. Lin 12/29/2016 8:18 am @ Golden Gate Park, California – various level of achievements via. the way of the tao/dao. Source: http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/D48CAfPuqdLnoxgjgmMbjQ 2016-12-28 微信公共平台 啟悟儒釋道 大而化之之謂聖”,是聖人境界,這就到了非常偉大的境界了,可以神通變化了。佛家講羅漢、菩薩;儒家叫聖賢;道家叫神仙;總而言之,統統叫做“聖”。 “聖”到什麼程度呢?“聖而不可知之之謂神”,是成仙成佛。 順便再給你們介紹什麼叫仙佛。道家神仙分五種,有鬼仙,地仙、人仙、天仙、大羅金仙。講到鬼,就講到生命問題了。鬼仙是最下階段的仙,一個人一輩子學佛修道學得迷糊,有些神經病似的,死了就做鬼仙。靈魂沒有解脫,得不到真的自由自在,就變鬼仙了。 再來是地仙,第二種,比較長壽,身體非常健康,到地仙境界是有幾個條件的,你不要自己冒充。第一,“身輕如葉”。身體輕得像一片樹葉一樣,沒有這裡酸,那裡痛,這裡障礙,那裡生病,都沒有了。第二“夜睡無夢”,沒有睡不著,也可以不睡,睡著了也不做夢。第三“行疾奔馬”,走路之快,可以跟馬並行,馬跑起來可以同時追上。到了這個程度,可能活一百歲兩百歲,這個樣子叫做地仙。 然後是人仙,人中之仙,健康長壽,道德、智能達到一個標準程度,就是孟子講的“充實而有光輝之謂大,大而化之之謂聖”,人中之仙。 然後再進一步,叫做天仙。第五步是大羅金仙,就是同佛一樣,成佛了。這就解說“聖而不可知之之謂神”了。 來源:《南懷瑾講演錄》 道家與方士,方士與神仙,在這三個名稱之下的類型人物,及其學術思想的內容與淵源,由戰國而到秦、漢之間,實在都是互相為用。到了漢、魏開始,延續一千多年,直到現在,方士的名稱,已成過去,只有道家與神仙,卻成為不可分家的混合觀念。其實,漢魏以後,道家神仙的學術,已經遠非秦、漢以上的面目,這一千多年來道家的神仙,實際上,卻是丹道派的天下,所謂丹道,便是以修煉精、氣、神為主的內丹方法,以求達到解脫而成神仙為最高目的。 關於神仙的種類,在宋、元以後,歸納起來,約分五種:(1)大羅金仙(神仙)。(2)天仙。(3)地仙。(4)人仙。(5)鬼仙。 初步修到死後的精靈不滅,在鬼道的世界中,能夠長久通靈而存在的,便是鬼仙的成果。 修到卻病延年、無災無患、壽登遐齡的,便是人中之仙的成果。 過此以上,如果修到辟穀服氣、行及奔馬、具有少分神異的奇蹟,可以部分不受物理世界各種現象所影響,如寒暑不侵,水火不懼的,便是地仙的成果。 … Continue reading
