Abstract

本文從題材和寺院實地搭臺兩方面討論新編佛教崑劇《未生怨》在當 代編寫和上演佛典阿闍世故事的意義。《未生怨》的文學文本由香港志蓮淨苑 訂稿,再交浙江崑劇團改編成崑曲劇本,於 2012 年在香港志蓮淨苑實地搭 臺上演。此戲取材自《佛說未生怨經》、《觀無量壽佛經》和《大般涅槃經》 三部佛經,演阿闍世前生與父親結怨、今生殺父囚母,及後懺悔、皈依佛陀 的故事。劇本題材內容與淨土信仰和修持方法關係密切。本文將從《未生怨》 的題材內容和實際劇場演出討論其宗教和戲曲意義。

The purpose of this study is to discuss the significance of the newly commissioned and staged Buddhist Kunqu Opera Innate Resentment. Mainly about the life of Ajase in Buddhist scriptures, the text of this play is compiled and edited by Hong Kong Chi Lin Nunnery. Subsequently, the Zhejiang Kunqu Opera Troupe adapted it into a Kunqu script. The production premiered at Hong Kong Chi Lin Nunnery in 2012. This play is based on three Buddhist sutras: Ajatasatru sutra 未生怨經, Mahayana Mahaparinirvana sutra 大般涅槃經, and Amitayurdhyana sutra 觀無量壽佛經. It tells about the story of Ajase, who held enmity with his father in previous incarnation, killed his father, and imprisoned his mother in this life. But he finally repented and became one of Buddha disciples. The theme and content is closely related with the practice and notion of salvation of the Pure Land Buddhist belief. In this study, I will explore the religious and theatrical connotation of Innate Resentment in the context of its theme and actual stage performance.
