張冠李戴的可能. 佛經中之所謂「月喻」有各式各樣的種類

Since ancient times, the commentators of the
`Yogacara-bhumi` have not been conscious of the fact
that the passage stating how "one should proceed
towards the donor's home in compliance with the
simile of the moon" refers to the Agama version of
this simile,and as a consequence,their
interpretations missed the point made.

In the present paper it was discovered,through
a comparative study of all extant versions of the
simile in both the Southern and Northern Traditions,
that in the context of "entering another one's
home",the simile originally should have meant "very
cautious","having abandoned greed",and "with shame
and care". The version in the Variant `Agama`
Translation,however,confused this with the idea of
good and bad friends expressed through the simile of
the waxing and waning moon,and the interpretation
given in the Yu-chie-lun ji seems to have the simile
wrongly identified as that in the `Nirvana-sutra`.

As Buddhist sutras contain many different
similes of the moon it is essential to grasp their
real meaning in each individual case. One must not
explain every instance from just one point of view.
