Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
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.
