    Buddhist Ritual–Pay Respect to Buddha

    【顶礼】

    顶礼名词,也出自佛经,佛每次说法,听众弟子都用头,而伏地,顶礼佛足而后就座。所以自己的头顶,礼佛双足,表显恭敬至极的意思。

    【合十】

    合十即合掌,是佛教传自印度的敬礼。合左右手掌的十指,表示我心专一的敬礼法。我国人见面以拱手为敬,印度人以合掌为敬。

    【和南】

    和南即稽首礼拜的意思。

    【跪拜】

    佛家拜佛与俗家不同,今将拜访佛仪式详述如下:

    一、直立合掌当胸,二足跟相离约二寸。前足头分开约八寸,成八字形。故名前八后二,站立拜垫之前。

    二、将顶礼时,右手先下,左手合掌样,腰干慢慢弯下,同时两腿屈下,令两膝靠着拜垫边。

    三、蹲下时,右手先着于拜垫中心,(此为一把)两膝跪于拜垫,次将左手放着拜垫上,较右手略前,(此为一把),然后将右手移上半手,与左手相齐,(此为半把,故拜之俗称名为两把半)。两掌相离约六寸。

    四、以头按于两掌中间之拜垫上,两手翻转,手掌朝上,(在当时,心观想以两手接佛足,故叫头面礼足)。

    五、顶礼毕,起身时,两手曲指成拳翻转,同时指头起身,先将左手缩回半手,次将右手缩回一手。

    六、起身时将右手撑在拜垫上,令身起立,(两膝同时离拜垫)同时将左手提起当胸,次将右手提起,合拿掌立直。此为一拜,如是拜佛要三拜,拜毕问讯。

    【问讯】

    问讯即晚辈见长辈行作揖礼,表示问安。这裡指礼佛时的问讯仪式。

    一、问讯时,手操弥陀印。(两掌仰叠,右上左下,两大指头相对),曲腰下去手不过膝。

    二、问讯起来,以两手中指,无名指,小指互抱,食指及大指均各竖起相对,举起一拱齐眉,再行放下合掌。
