 It is basically the Equanimity of the Awakened ones, of the Ariya’s, that in the third jhana they speak of that; this is a pleasant abiding, steady awareness, steady presence of mind.

It is that Equanimity, that steadiness of mind in the fourth jhana, in this particular sutta [AN IX 34 Nibbānasukha Sutta], that is the coarser aspect which comes and troubles us.

I called it immovability, because to say that Equanimity is disturbing, is kind of…odd, I felt 🙂 Because Equanimity is the opposite of disturbance. At that point there is still awareness of form, awareness of body.

In my understanding that’s where I lean towards.
