Lokacintā 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. However, in fact, said the Buddha, what he saw was real; he saw the Asurā host running away from the Devā and escaping through a lotus stalk. It is, therefore, unprofitable to speculate about the world. S.v.446 f.

As in the Cinta Sutta (q.v.)
