Once, when the Buddha was at Savatthi, a Brahmin came into the presence of the Exalted One, exchanged greetings, and spake thus: "What think you, Bho Gotama--Everything is?" "Everything is, that Brahmin, is the chief world superstition." "Then indeed, Bho Gotama, nothing is?" "Nothing is, that Brahmin, is the second world superstition." "What think you, Bho Gotama--Everything is a unity?" "Everything is a unity, that Brahmin, is the third world superstition." "Then, indeed, Bho Gotama--everything is a plurality?" "Everything is a plurality, that Brahmin, is the fourth world superstition."
