Buddha-Dharma-Sangha History

Acinteyyāni – Pāli- Incomprehensible or Unfathomable

“acinteyyāni (Pāli). Term denoting matters which are incomprehensible or unfathomable. These are commonly divided into four ‘spheres’ (visaya) concerning matters relating to the nature of (1) the Buddha; (2) the meditative absorptions (dhyānā); (3) *karma and karmic retribution; and (4) the world (lokacintā), particularly concerning whether it had a first beginning. Brooding on these four questions is said to be unproductive and unprofitable.” (PDoB)
