Asaṃbaddha (असंबद्ध) refers to that which is “internally incoherent”.—In his Tantravārttika 1.3.3, Kumārila (c. seventh century) claims that those who are learned in the three Vedas (trayīvit) do not accept the scriptures of the Sāṃkhyas, followers of the Yoga school, Pāñcarātrika Vaiṣṇavas, Pāśupatas, Buddhists, and Jains, for they contradict the Veda (trayīviparīta) and are internally incoherent (asaṃbaddha). The reliability of authors of such scriptures is also questioned. In his view, these authors are not trustworthy inasmuch as their only wish is to gain social approval, wealth, veneration and fame by cloaking their scriptures, as it were, with elements borrowed from the Veda.

Asambaddha (असम्बद्ध) or Asaṃbaddhapralāpa refers to one “speaking nonsense”.—To the exoteric vision the clown appears to bring together wholly unconnected elements and domains in his utterances (the enigma), he is unable to see the differences between things, and is led astray by false and ridiculous analogies. This is why he is necessarily a fool (mūrkha) speaking nonsense (asambaddha-pralāpa), and hence his assimilation to a madman.
