Re: Meditation machines?

Hello:

Its because they take "deep meditation" as being inmersed in some relaxed semi-trance thing.
You dont need a machine to do that.

Much metta.

Re: The thing about the breath

Hi Matheesha, a) "It looks like the Buddha didnt quite say not to relax the body (and later the mind) during anapanasati, when it comes to that point in the development.

Re: are animals that kill reborn in hell?

Yeap,

I imagine there are several types of killing, and each one have they own merit or demerit:

if u kill to survive, if u kill to save lifes, if u kill to watch the world burn, if u kill because u enjoy the suffering of others,etc...

Each one makes a different life tendency.

Mindfulness-Focused in-of itself?

"In this way he remains focused internally on the body in & of itself,
or externally on the body in & of itself, or both internally & externally on the body in & of itself. "

What it means focus internally? focus externally? focus in & of itself?

Thanks!
