Abstract:

唐宋之际,中国佛教在理论探索和宗教修行方面,都经历了重大的变革。宋代佛教尤倾向于修行实践。宋代天台宗人之礼忏风气盛行,并且制作不同于隋唐时期之忏悔仪轨。净源作为中兴华严宗的学者,必须为本宗的实践作出努力,而华严宗本身缺乏实践性,唯一可以作为实践行仪只有《修证仪》,于是净源不得不将十八卷删为一卷。但是,这样无形中减少了华严宗忏法本身的重理性、重思想的特色。忏法不仅包含消除业罪的仪式,还包括一些志存更高远的仪式。彼时,在“国家佛教”背景的考量下,它变成了一个消除共业、保家护国的仪式。在宋代,佛教社邑得到持续发展。社邑因信仰而聚集,因忏法实践而团结。在佛教忏法的影响下,中国佛教这一时期走向大众化、社会化。
