Visuddhimagga IV-164

Yā pana chandādīsu yevāpanakesu āgatā sahajātānaṃ samavāhitabhūtā upekkhā, ayaṃ tatramajjhattupekkhā nāma.


Ñ(IV,164): Equanimity as specific neutrality is a name for equanimity consisting in the equal efficiency of conascent states: it is contained among the 'or-whatever states' beginning with zeal (Ch. XIV, §133; DhsA. 132).

Notes in Chinese translation: 「欲等」或指欲、作意、胜解、中舍等诸心所法,这一句引自何处不明。
