Dharma talk on the benefit of applying the cooling and steadying wisdom factor of equanimity  (upeksha; upekkha) to compassion, joy, and loving kindness.  The latter three Brahmaviharas, or Four Immeasurables,  may be experienced as more exciting than equanimity.  Yet, because it embodies a long run and big picture view, equanimity helps us to contact more of the complex and varied nature of reality.

A Dharma talk given by Mushim on December 4, 2011 at the Gay Buddhist Fellowship in San Francisco.
