Equanimous Mind

Post by tranzenic »

So often in dhamma talk, we hear about attaining an equanimous mind. Here's a real life example of one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlHSl0vXBY0. Watching this video, I realize this girl has much for one to learn, and her life journey is an example of dhamma and wisdom. This is vipassana.

No. It is not Vipassana.
This is called household equanimity based on ignorance.
If you like to know what is Vipassana please read Satipathana Sutta.

Real equnimity dont have intentional volational formation. In second jhana its absent .. similarly if u see things as they are u can do in normal life outside jhana where things arise and pass away
I may be slow learner but im at least learning...
