2 問禮:
言偃問曰:「夫子之極言禮也,可得而聞乎?」孔子言:「我欲觀夏道,是故之杞,而不足徵,吾得《夏時》焉;我欲觀殷道,是故之宋,而不足徵也,吾得《乾坤》焉。《乾坤》之義,《夏時》之等,吾以此觀之。夫禮初也,始於飲食。太古之時,燔黍擘豚,汙罇而抔飲,蕢桴而土鼓,猶可以致敬於鬼神。及其死也,升屋而號,曰:『高!某復。』然後飲腥苴熟,形體則降,魂氣則上,是為天望而地藏也。故生者南嚮,死者北首,皆從其初也。昔之王者,未有宮室,冬則居營窟,夏則居橧巢;未有火化,食草木之實、鳥獸之肉,飲其血,茹其毛;未有絲麻,衣其羽皮。後聖有作,然後脩火之利;範金合土,以為臺榭、宮室、戶牖;以炮以燔,以烹以炙,以為醴酪,治其絲麻,以為布帛;以養生送死,以事鬼神。故玄酒在室,醴、醆在戶,粢醍在堂,澄酒在下,陳其犧牲,備其鼎俎,列其琴、瑟、管、磬、鐘、鼓,以其祝嘏,以降其上神,與其先祖;以正君臣,以篤父子,以睦兄弟,以齊上下,夫婦有所,是謂承天之祜。作其祝號,玄酒以祭,薦其血毛,腥其俎;熟其殽,趏席以坐,疏布以罩,衣其浣帛,醴、醆以獻,薦其燔炙,君與夫人交獻,以嘉魂魄;是謂合莫。然後退而合烹,體其犬豕牛羊,實其簠、簋、籩、豆、鉶羹,祝以孝告,嘏以慈告,是為大祥。此禮之大成也。」
