巴利語匯解&巴利新音譯 瑪欣德尊者
catasso yoniyo:四生。生(yoni),有起源、原因、生、胎、子宮等意思。四生即有情獲得色身或出生的方式:卵生(aṇḍajā yoni)、胎生(jalābujā yoni)、濕生(saṃsedajā yoni)和化生(opapātikā yoni)。
《中部·大獅子吼經》中說:
“沙利子,有此四種生。哪四種呢?卵生、胎生、濕生、化生。沙利子,哪些是卵生呢?沙利子,那些破卵殼而出生的有情,沙利子,這稱為卵生。沙利子,哪些是胎生呢?沙利子,那些破胎膜而出生的有情,沙利子,這稱為胎生。沙利子,哪些是濕生呢?沙利子,那些在腐魚中出生、在腐屍、餿面食、汙水池、臭水溝裏出生的有情,沙利子,這稱為濕生。沙利子,哪些是化生呢?天人、地獄、某一類人和某一類墮惡趣者,沙利子,這稱為化生。沙利子,這就是四種生。"(M.1.152)
在這四種生中,從四大王天以上的天人都是化生,但地居天人四種生都有。人類絕大部分是胎生,但也可能有其他三種生。對於墮惡趣者,地獄眾生和燒渴餓鬼只是化生,其余的四種生都有。
