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.”
