I suspect 'limited equanimity' is perhaps Bhante's way of differentiating the equanimity that one develops in vipassana practice, where one continuously remains aware of the rise and fall of phenomena as opposed to the equanimity one develops in samatha practice which, as with all of the brahmaviharas, becomes infinite and boundless.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
