What is samatha meditation? What is it used for? How is it practiced? How does it differ from Vipassana?

Can you show me your favorite instructional video for Samatha meditation?

Thanks

    • Buddhism is a practical psychology and philosophy, not a religion.
    • If you cling to view, you must know this limits your potential.
