7sb☀️ 7 upekkha sam bojjh-aṅgaṃ

equanimous-observation awakening factor

4👑☸7sb☀️7🛆👁     🔝

🛆👁 Upekkha = equanimous-observation

✅ Upekkha has an equanimity aspect, but more importantly, vipassana capability to realize awakening.
It's basically Dhamma-vicaya-bojjhanga supercharged with samādhi-sam-bojjhanga (aka four jhānas) + right view.
⛔ Upekkha is not just 'equanimity'. It's equanimous-observation. Upekkha = upa + ikkhati (👁 looking upon [with right view]).
Just as a peanut butter sandwich ≠ is not a peanut butter AND JELLY sandwich. Two different things.

1. as awakening factor 7🛆👁 : doing vipassana to awaken (SN 46.3), is exactly the same as (#2) upekkha in 4 jhānas.
2. in four jhānas (4j🌕 ) doing vipassana (AN 3.102).
  2a. MN 137.5.1 - (upekkha based on diversity/nanatta are 3rd and 4th jhāna) with 5 senses ON.
  2b. MN 137.5.2 - (upekkha based on unity/ekatta are 4 a-rūpa attainments)
3. in 5👑abi️ as in MN 152, one can infer, is also the same as the above,
since for one to be an awakened noble, one would need a minimum of first jhāna, obtained via 7sb☀️ .
4. in brahma-vihāra 4bv☮️ , for an ariya, would share attributes with all of the above.
As part of 4bv, one would energetically pervade in all directions (of desired radius).
upekkha that could be sensed by other beings as a palpable peaceful radiation,
similar to how seeing someone smile can make you smile.
5. upekkha of 5 indriya/vedana (SN 48.37) only shares emotional tone (equanimity) of 3rd and 4th jhāna, not vipassana capability.
The 4 jhānas are the progressive pacification (passaddhi-sambojjhanga)
of these 5 indriya/vedana (SN 36.11).
6. Upekkha of unawakened ordinary person = equanimous-boredom when indulging in 5kg , see MN 137.3.5 and SN

7🛆👁 upekkha awakening factor ≡ exactly equal to upekkha in 4j🌕 jhāna.
7🛆👁 ≡ also identical to 5👑abi️ : as part of the 5th noble one's developed faculties.
4.🛆👁️ as the 4th brahma-vihāra ≤ can overlap with 7🛆👁 if 4bv done by one with right view.
upekkha of 5 indriya/vedana (SN 48.37) ≠ not equal to 7🛆👁 and jhāna upekkha. More of just the a-dukkham-a-sukham sensation feeling tone.

Upekkha as an awakening factor (explicit sutta ref.)

SN 46.1: all 7 factors used in gradual training to lead to awakening.
SN 46.2: nutriment for upekkha is wise attention to Dharmas (teachings) that develop it.
SN 46.3: The function of upekkha is equanimous observation of mind in samādhi, leading to liberating insight.

implicit/stealth upekkha references

Too many to list. In gradual training, upekkha awakening factor stage would be where 3 or 6ab ⚡☸ higher knowledges occur, such as DN
