Sorry, I didn’t answer your question, sir. To cultivate the Jhanas we need an object appropriate to our temperament (gati). Only a Lord Buddha can tell us 100% which one is best suited. Metta, Karuna, Mudita, and Upekkha are useful objects for developing Jhanas. These objects can lead to Ariyas Jhanas with a good understanding of Tilakkhana. These are characteristics of anagami. They are benevolent, they have altruistic joy, compassion, and equanimity towards the objects of Kāma Loka. They include ashta loka dhammas. It is by being arahant that equanimity becomes 100% perfect. An arahant will be equanimous towards the 3 Lokas.
