Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

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 actions,
born, created, and conditioned by the accumulated effect of their past intentions!
Whose, if not theirs, is the choice 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 endearment subside, and it
fails, when it instead produces a bored, indifferent, and careless state of negligence.
Visuddhimagga I 318

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