The Buddha, quite clearly, taught both. One as a means to achieve the other.
Sorry. But you have to provide evidence the Buddha taught Hindu style yogic meditation of watching the breath. Please note: the word "sati" ("mindfulness") does not mean "watching". :heart:

You really have no idea what you are talking about. Did you read the Sutta I linked too?
ye dhammā hetuppabhavā tesaṁ hetuṁ tathāgato āha,
tesaṃca yo nirodho - evaṁvādī mahāsamaṇo.

Of those phenomena which arise from causes:
Those causes have been taught by the Tathāgata,
And their cessation too - thus proclaims the Great Ascetic.
