Sati (from Pali: सति; Sanskrit: स्मृति smṛti) is mindfulness or awareness, a spiritual or psychological faculty (indriya) that forms an essential part of Buddhist practice.
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, which one can develop through the practice of meditation and through other training. Mindfulness is derived from sati, a significant element of Buddhist traditions, and based on Zen, Vipassanā, and Tibetan meditation techniques.[note 1]

Gotama was investigating the five aggregates , how ignorance led to suffering .
sati-paṭṭhāna，establishment of sati
sati-upaṭṭhāna，paying attention to with sati
The four foundation/establishment of mindfulness is a series of contemplation with regard to the , groups of bodies(kaya) , which give rise to feeling(vedana etc) , which give rise to attachment(citta), which penetrating how from beginning of ignorance led to suffering(dhamma)
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.

What kind of practice (technique) Shakyamuni was doing under the bodhi tree?
jhana and vipasanna?
Find a tree and practice jhana or dont regret later- Buddha
Something exist, dont exist, both exist and non exist, neither exist nor dont exist .. all these four possibilities are wrong- Nagarjuna
Find a dhamma companion or roam alone like rhinoceros in the wild- Buddha
If you are not happy even after following 8NP then you are doing it wrong- CL (confused layman)
