Meditating on a characteristic of breath

Post by YCS »

I had a mind that was restless, so I countered it by observing the singularity of purpose of the breath, ie that it is for exchanging air for the body. I found it ratget useful. Can anyone advise what is this type of meditation called, if any?

I wasn't just observing the breathing. I was contemplating it's single purpose to counter the minds running around looking for many mental objects to grasp.

This is not meditating on the air element right, as it isn't about air character within the body.

Thanks for any advice.
