  • tatra-majjhattatā

'equanimity, equipoise, mental balance' (lit., 'remaining here and there in the middle'), is the name for a high ethical quality belonging to the sankhāra-kkhandha (s. khandha) and is mostly known by the name upekkhā.

In its widest sense it is associated with all pure consciousness (s. Tab. II).

"Tatra-majjhattatā is called the 'keeping in the middle of all things'.

It has as characteristic that it affects the balance of consciousness and mental factors; as nature (function; rasa), that it prevents excessiveness and deficiency, or that it puts an end to partiality; as manifestation, that it keeps the proper middle" (Vis.M. XIV). (App.).
