Abstract:

唐宋之際,中國佛教在理論探索和宗教修行方面,都經歷了重大的變革。宋代佛教尤傾向於修行實踐。宋代天台宗人之禮懺風氣盛行,並且制作不同於隋唐時期之懺悔儀軌。淨源作為中興華嚴宗的學者,必須為本宗的實踐作出努力,而華嚴宗本身缺乏實踐性,唯一可以作為實踐行儀只有《修證儀》,於是淨源不得不將十八卷刪為一卷。但是,這樣無形中減少了華嚴宗懺法本身的重理性、重思想的特色。懺法不僅包含消除業罪的儀式,還包括一些志存更高遠的儀式。彼時,在“國家佛教”背景的考量下,它變成了一個消除共業、保家護國的儀式。在宋代,佛教社邑得到持續發展。社邑因信仰而聚集,因懺法實踐而團結。在佛教懺法的影響下,中國佛教這一時期走向大眾化、社會化。
