《方山開》

Library Resources
1 方山開:
唐曹州武城人方山開,少善弓矢,尤好遊獵,以之為業,所殺無數。貞觀十一年死,經一宿蘇,云。初死之時。被二十人引去。行可十餘里。即上一山。三鬼共引山開,登梯而進,上欲至頂。忽有一大白鷹,鐵為觜爪,飛來,攫山開左頰而去。又有一黑鷹,亦鐵觜爪,攫其右肩而去。及至山頂,引至廳事,見一官人,被服緋衣,首冠黑幘。謂山開曰。生平有何功德。可具言之。」對曰:「立身已來,不修功德。」官曰:「可宜引向南院觀望。」二人即引南行,至一城,非常險峻。二人扣城北門數下,門遂開,見其城中赫然,總是猛火。門側有數毒蛇。皆長十餘丈。頭大如五斗斛,口中吐火,如欲射人。山開恐懼,不知所出,唯知叩頭念佛而已。門即自開,乃還見官人,欲遣受罪。侍者諫曰:「山開未合即死,但恐一入此城,不可得出,未若且放,令修功德。」官人曰:「善」。令前二人送之,依舊道而下,復有鷹欲攫之,賴此二人援護得免。及下山,見一大坑,極穢惡,忽被二人推入,須臾即蘇。面及右膊之上,爪蹟宛然,終身不滅。遂舍妻子,以宅為佛院,恒以誦經為業。出《法苑珠林》
