Serene Equanimity promotes Imperturbable Peace:

Serene Equanimity promotes imperturbable Peace:

Equanimity just looks on and observes, while calmly settled in composed neutrality.
Equanimity is characterized as promoting the aspect of impartiality among beings.
Its function is to see the equality of all beings. It is manifested as the quieting of
both resentment and approval. Its proximate cause is seeing and comprehending
the ownership and efficacy of kamma thus: All beings are owners of their deeds,
born, created and conditioned by the accumulated effect of their past intentions!
Whose, if not theirs, is the choices by which they have become happy, or unhappy,
or will break free from suffering, or have fallen down from their past good state?
Equanimity succeeds, when it makes both resentment and approval subside, and it
fails, when it instead produces a bored, indifferent, & careless state of negligence
Vism I 318

Non-involved and even Equanimity is a subtle form of happiness... By stabilization
it perfects and consummates all the other six links to awakening: Awareness,
Investigation, Energy, Joy and Concentration. Equanimity is the proximate cause
for knowing and seeing it, as it really is. Equanimity quenches any upset agitation!
When seeing and noting: All this is constructed, conditioned, coarse and transient!
But this state of serene equanimity is indeed exquisitely peaceful, then instantly
ceases any arisen agreeable or nasty feeling, when Equanimity takes its stance!

The Power of Equanimity: Not agitation, wavering or panic there!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
