Is an equilibrium point really for an oscillatory motion if so, why??because the definition of oscillatory kotion is that the particle moves to and fro about a mean point i.e,the equilibrium point

No.
Every oscillatory motion would achieve the equilibrium position but it is also true for other periodic positions which can or cannot be the SHMs.
Their energy can vary and hence stabikity at a particular pointt depending upon the crests and troughs.
