N: Going back to the Vis text: < The fourth jhana...which...'has mindfulness
purified by equanimity'.>
I do not read the notion of <generated by> upekkhaa. They arise at the same
time, there is no previous generation by upekkhaa.
The Vibhanga text in English has caused by, but I do not have the Pali. But
also this word may not be a problem if we think of conascence. Citta and
cetasikas are arising together and experience the same object.
Detachment and many other sobhana cetasikas had become strong because of the
yogavacara's development of calm. Then it was the right time for the arising
of the jhaanacitta of the fourth stage, where upekkhaa, sati and also the
other accompanying cetasikas have reached a high degree of purity. It all
falls into place at that one moment of jhaanacitta.
So I do not think there is a difference of view between the Vibhanga, the
Visuddhimagga and the Sutta nipata.
