The Perfection of Equanimity

The Commentary to the “Basket of Conduct” defines the perfection of equanimity, upekkha, as follows:


“Equanimity has the characteristic of promoting the aspect of neutrality;

its function is to see things impartially;

its manifestation is the subsiding of attraction and repulsion;

reflection upon the fact that all beings inherit the results of their own kamma is its proximate cause.”
