Upekkha is a Pali term.

Upekkha is rendered as Neutral [Feeling].

Uppekha is also translated as Equanimity.

Upekkha is one of the four Bhamaso Taya. The others are Metta, Karuna and Mudita.

In a loose usage in Burmese, “Upekkha Shu” means “ignore”. It is not representative of the importance of Upekkha (which provides a balance of life and avoids the two extremes as stated in the Dhammacakka Sutta).

It is non-trivial to sense Upekkha while practicing Vipassana (Insight) Meditation.

Feelings may be be categorized as

  • Pleasant Feeling
  • Unpleasant Feeling
  • Non-Pleasant and Non-Unpleasant Feeling

Upekkha is synonymous with “Non-Pleasant and Non-Unpleasant Feeling”.
