妙法蓮華經卷*第二 *後秦龜茲國三藏法師鳩摩羅什奉 詔譯 T09n0262_002_0013b[0013b04] 「舍利弗!如彼長者,雖復身手有力而不用之,但以慇懃方便勉濟諸子火宅之難,然後各與珍寶大車。如來亦復如是,雖有力、無所畏而不用之,但以智慧方便,於三界火宅拔濟眾生,為說三乘——聲聞、辟支佛、佛乘,而作是言:『汝等莫得樂住三界火宅,勿貪麁弊色聲香味觸也。若貪著生愛,則為所燒。汝速出三界,當得三乘——聲聞、辟支佛、佛乘。我今為汝保任此事,終不虛也。汝等但當勤修精進。』如來以是方便誘進眾生,復作是言:『汝等當知此三乘法,皆是聖所稱歎,自在無繫,無所依求。乘是三乘,以無漏根、力、覺、道、禪定、解脫、三昧等而自娛樂,便得無量安隱快樂。』
