如何看待佛牙的真伪; 百度百科

佛牙真伪,已有明确界线。界线的一侧是两颗释迦牟尼佛火化后遗留下来的真身舍利。确切的说,

一颗是斯里兰卡康堤佛牙寺内供奉的 [锡兰佛牙];

另一颗是中国北京西山灵光寺佛牙塔内供奉的 [法献佛牙]。

其余所有[佛牙]都在界线上的另一侧。它们都是佛牙舍利的替代品、复制品,而非释迦牟尼佛的真身牙舍利。

我们应如何对待这些佛牙替代品和复制品呢?

(1)佛经上说,见佛舍利如见佛。据此推知见到佛牙舍利的代用品,也要像对待佛陀真身牙舍利那样恭敬礼拜。这有如以金、银、铜、木纸、泥各种材质制作的佛像都应视作佛陀本身而不可有些许轻慢。

(2)历朝佛牙都曾显赫一时,为帝王将相、高僧大德所重。其本身而及供养之物,不仅有特殊的宗教意义,亦因珍贵文物的属性而具重要历史价值和文物价值。凡此种佛牙出现,都要受到妥善保护,不应以佛牙真伪为由随便处置。

总之,无论何处发现有所谓出土佛牙者,佛教界和有关方面切勿以发现释迦牟尼佛真身牙舍利作宣传,只可以佛牙影骨或复制品称之。

只要不以真身舍利惑众,都可供养礼拜,都可以赞佛功德。退而言之,作为佛教徒,在真伪、实幻、空有等问题上应以佛陀精神为本,不必过于执著。

The most precious Relic, 珍贵的佛牙舍利

The Tooth Relic is house in this golden castet placed securely in the inner chamber of the Dalada Maligawa.

The most precious Relic – 珍贵的佛牙舍利

Sri Dalada – the Sacred Tooth Relic – now housed in the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, Sri Lanka’s hill capital is the most venerated object by millions of Buddhists throughout the world.

In the ninth year (312 A.D.) of the reign of the Anuradhapura King Sirimeghavanna (303-331 A.D.). The Tooth Relic was brought by a princess disguised as a Brahmin lady, Princess Hemamala, the daughter of King Guhaseeva of Dantpura (Orissa) was accompanied by Prince Danta, his son-in-law. The King received the Relic with honour, kept it in a shrine within the Royal Palace and held an annual festival at which it was taken in procession to the Abhyagiri Vihara and exhibited to the people.

Foreign invasions and civil war disturbed the peace in the country from time to time and often resulted in the destruction of temples. The monks, however, ensured the protection of the Tooth Relic by taking it away from the capital and hiding it in various places. The Relic was brought back when peace dawned.
