1 董吉:
董吉,于潜人也,奉法三世,至吉尤精进,恒斋戒诵首楞严经。村中有病,辄请吉诵经,所救多愈。同县何晃亦奉法,卒得山毒之病困。困原作“因”,据明钞本改。晃兄惶遽,驰往请吉。董何二舍,相去六七十里,复隔大溪,五月中大雨,晃兄初渡时,水尚未至,吉与期设中食后,比往而山水暴涨不复可涉,吉不能泅。迟廻叹息良久。吉既信直,必欲赴期,乃测然发心,自誓曰:“吾救人苦急,不计躯命,冀如来大士,当照乃诚。”便脱衣,以囊经戴置头上,径入水中,量其深浅,乃应至吉颈,及渡,才至膝耳。既得上岸,失囊经,甚悲恨,寻至晃家,三礼忏悔,流涕自责。俛仰之间。便见经囊在高座上,吉悲喜取看,浥浥如有湿气,开囊视经,尚燥如故。于是村人一时奉法。吉家西北,有山高险,中多妖魅,犯害居民。吉以经戒之力,欲降伏之。于山际四五亩地,手伐林木,构造小屋,安设高座。转首楞严经百馀日。寂然无妖,民害稍止。后有数人至,与吉言语良久。吉思惟非于潜人,穷山幽绝,何因而来,疑是鬼神,乃谓之曰:“诸君得无是此中鬼耶。答曰:“是也。闻君德行清肃,故来相观,并请一事,想必见听。吾世有此山,游居所托,君既来止,虑相犯冒,恒怀不安。今欲更作界分,当杀树为断。”吉曰:“仆贪此寂静,读诵经典,不相干犯,方喜为此,愿见佑助。”鬼答曰:“亦复凭君,不侵克也。”言毕而去。经宿,所芟地四际之外,树皆枯死,如焚焉。出《冥祥记》
