10. Four Arakkhakammatthana - protective meditation:
Buddhanussati: contemplation of purity and sanctity of the Buddha assistance given by him to all men.
Metta: exudes a sense of camaraderie and desires that all beings can live happily without exception.
Asubha: ponder bodies belong to themselves and others, that they are basically disgusting.
Maranasati: contemplating death and that death can come at any time.
Four kammatthana should always be developed within each of us.
