Citta gives his solution to a riddle posed by the Venerable Kamabhu.
Citta asks the Venerable Kamabhu various questions about attaining the ending of perception and sense-experience.
Citta answers the questions of a bhikkhu on the various ways the heart's releast is attained and the various terminologies used to describe that release.
This is a very good sutta to learn about what is meant by the various 'heart's releases' that are mentioned throughout the suttas, but it is also a good sutta to learn to become flexible in one's understanding of the equavilance of various Dhammas to each other.
Citta debates with the Nigantha, Nata's son the possibility of their being a mental state without thought and pondering.

Citta the householder lay follower of the Buddha and Acela Kassapa, a wandering naked ascetic compare notes on the progress after thirty years of their choice of seeker's paths. Acela admits to having accomplished nothing while Citta has become a non-returner. This so impresses Acela that he becomes a bhikkhu and attains arahantship.

The dying moments of Citta the householder, his vision and his instructions to his friends and relatives.
The title of this should have the meaning of 'the vision of the sick' or 'seen by the sick'. It has nothing to do with visiting the sick.
