if i got it right if you count the breath its samtha and if you dont then its vipasana
and i also saw : if you say "in" and "out" and focus on this its samatha and if you note the feeling its vipasana
when you say samatha-vipasana you mean to focus deeper by nose and also note secondery objects ? thats what i think i do at the moment not on purpose
what i meant in the question ( but i am intarested in hearing also about what you understood i was asking ) was does it make sense to do the meditation intentionally samatha and the whole day use labeling or is it not that useful and its better to do the same while meditating ( which makes sense cause thats what is tuoght but i wonder if its a big difference )
