1 永那跋摩:
永那䟦摩者。西域僧也。宋元嘉中,東遊渡江。居於金陵祇園寺。宋文帝常謂之曰:「弟子恒願持齋,不殺生命,以身徇物,不獲其志。法師不遠萬里,來化此國,將何以教之。對曰:「道在心,不在事;法由己,非由人。且帝王與凡庶,所修亦有殊矣。若凡庶者,身賤名微,德不及遠,其教不出於門庭,其言不行於僕妾。若不苦身刻己,行善持誡,將何以用其心哉。帝王以四海為家,萬民為子,出一嘉言,則士庶咸悅,布一善政,則人神以和。刑清則不夭其命,役簡則無勞其力。然後辨鐘律,正時令。鐘律辨則風雨調,號令時則寒暑節。如此則持齋亦已大矣。不殺亦已衆矣。安在乎缺一時之膳,全一禽之命,然後乃為弘濟也。」文帝撫几嗟歎,稱善者良久。乃曰:「俗人迷於遠理,沙門滯於近教。迷遠理者謂為虛說。滯近教者拘戀章句。如法師者,真所謂開悟明達,可以言天人之際矣。出《劇談錄》
