康熙字典文字版 【子集下】【力字部】 力
〔古文〕𠠲【唐韻】【集韻】【韻會】𠀤林直切,陵入聲。【說文】筋也。象人筋之形。【徐曰】象人筋竦,其身作力,勁健之形。【增韻】筋,力氣所任也。【禮·聘義】日幾中而後禮成,非强有力者不能行也。又【曲禮】老者不以筋力爲禮。又【韻會】凡精神所及處,皆曰力。【孟子】聖人旣竭目力焉,旣竭耳力焉。又【韻會】物所勝亦曰力。【家語】善御馬者均馬力。【杜甫·張旭草書詩】溟漲與筆力。又勤也。【書·盤庚】若農服田力穡,乃亦有秋。【前漢·司馬遷傳】力誦聖德。【註】師古曰:力,勤也。又【禮·坊記】食時不力珍。【註】力,猶務也。又【後漢·銚期傳】身被三創,而戰方力。【註】力,苦戰也。又病甚曰力。【唐書·汲黯傳】臣犬馬病力。又爲人役者曰力。【晉·陶潛·與子書】遣此力,助汝薪水之勞。又姓。【韻會】黃帝佐力牧之後。又【韻補】叶力蘖切,苓入聲。【蘇軾·香積寺詩】此峯獨蒼然,感荷祖佛力。幽光發中夜,見者惟木客。

朱芾煌:法相辭典 瑜伽七十卷五頁雲:力者:能害所治故。
二解 如五力中說。
三解 此釋五力力義。大毗婆沙論九十六卷八頁雲:難可摧制,故名為力。
四解 此釋十力之力。瑜伽四十九卷十六頁雲:
五解 與一切種饒益一切有情功能,具相應故;畢竟勝伏一切魔怨,大威力故;說名為力。
六解 大毗婆沙論一百二卷十七頁雲:問:何故如來身中,有智立為力;聲聞獨覺身中,諸智、皆不立為力耶?答:不可屈伏,無障礙義,是力義。聲聞獨覺身中諸智,猶為無知屈伏,及有障礙,故不名力。曾聞佛與尊者舍利子,一處經行。有一有情,來詣彼所。佛告舍利子:汝可觀此有情,過去曾于何處,為汝親友。時舍利子以初靜慮,乃至以第四靜慮,宿住隨念智,觀之;皆不能見。便從定起而白佛言:我之定力,觀不能見。佛告舍利子:如是有情,曾于過去爾所劫前,為汝親友。彼時既遠;非諸聲聞獨覺境界,故汝不知。佛又一時與舍利子,一處經行。時有一人,遇緣而死。佛告舍利子:汝應觀彼當生何處。時舍利子,以初靜慮乃至以第四靜慮天眼觀之;皆不能見。便從定起而白佛言:我之天眼,觀不能見。佛告舍利子:此人命終,生某世界。彼處既遠;非諸聲聞獨覺境界,故汝不知。問:三乘漏盡,既無差別;何故漏盡智,二乘非力耶?答:佛漏盡智,勝妙猛利,非諸聲聞獨覺所及。雖俱盡漏;而有遲速。如有二人,各伐一樹。一人勇健,加用利斧。一人力劣,又用鈍斧。雖俱伐樹;而有遲速。故佛漏盡智,立力;非二乘。又二乘智,雖能盡漏;有餘習故,不名為力。又漏盡智立為力者,不依能盡自身漏故,但依能令他身漏盡。謂佛善達如是有情,應依苦遲通行,當得漏盡。乃至如是有情,應依樂速通行,當得漏盡。由此方便,為說正法,皆令漏盡,故立力名。二乘不爾;故不名力。
