True Equanimity

Question: I am not very clear about equanimity as the last of the Four Immeasurable Minds. Does it mean being neutral, ‘not affectionate’ and ‘not averse’,  being calm and not feeling

Answer: Equanimity means a broad encompassing mind that sees all beings as equally deserving of loving-kindness, compassion and rejoice. It’s not a neutral unfeeling state; just free of particular attachments and aversions.
