惡叉

Từ Điển Thuật Ngữ Phật Học Hán Ngữ

akṣa, ‘a seed of which rosaries are made (in compound DICT_ENTRY_WORDs, like Indrāksha, Rudrāksha); a shrub producing that seed ( Eleocarpus ganitrus).’ M. W. It is called the 惡叉聚 because its seeds are said to be formed in triplets, and illustrate the simultaneous character of 惑行苦 illusion, action, and suffering; another version is that the seeds fall in clusters, and illustrate numbers, or numerous; they are also known as 金剛子.
