|Cintā Sutta：1．Cintā Sutta.-Unprofitable reasoning about the world，life，etc.，should be abandoned．Thoughts about Ill，etc.，should be cultivated．S.v.418.
2．Cintā Sutta.-Once a man，having left Rājagaha，came to the Sumāgadhā Lotus Pond and started speculating about the world．He then saw a whole army entering a lotus-stalk．Thinking himself mad，he returned to the town，where he told people what he had seen； they confirmed his belief in his madness．But，in fact，said the Buddha，what he saw was real； he saw the Asura-host running away from the Devas and escaping through a lotus stalk．It is，therefore，unprofitable to speculate about the world．S.v.446f.
