Equanimity gives delicate Peace & Happiness!
Equanimity (Upekkhā) entails a composed equipoise of solid mental balance!
It is Tatra-majjhattatā  = keeping to the moderate middle of all phenomena.
Equanimity balances consciousness so it prevents both all excessiveness and
deficiency.  In equanimity mind is neither attracted by attractive things,
nor repelled by repulsive things. The cause of equanimity is seeing the law of
kamma: All beings are born and created by their kamma, they are owners of
their kamma, inherit their kamma, whatever they do, whether good or bad,
the effects of that will be theirs only, following them like a shadow of past!
The effect of Equanimity is threefold:
Exquisite, relaxed & subtle peace felt as calm happiness is instantly gained.
Equanimity purifies and completes all the 7 crucial Links to Awakening...
Equanimity is the proximate cause of knowledge and vision (ñānadassana)!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
