Impermanence and Equanimity explained

When you think what these words mean, here is what the Internet has to say:

  • Impermanence – every conditioned existence, without exception, is inconstant and in flux
  • Equanimitypermission to feel … feel so deep that it changes the nature of feeling.

You most certainly will understand it after you have listened to the audiobook “The Science of Enlightenment (MP3|CDA). Then you will have a greater feel for these definitions, find yourself wanting to practize it. Other notions are: dharma, karma, samadhi, zen.

The Science of Enlightenment” are a series of talks from Shinzen Young where he elaborates on meditation, the alikeness – through all cultures and religions – of experiences while meditating and above all a rather scientific approach to the explanation of it all. And of course you haven’t experienced anything, when you haven’t done it. Go in meditation with Shinzen Young. And reading further you will find Ross Jeffries recognized an application.


Shinzen Young is a teacher of Vipassana meditation and founder of Vipassana Support International. Vipassana means to see things as they really are and is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2.500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living.
