Meditation is often characterized under two forms: samatha meditation and vipassana meditation. Samatha can be translated as 'calmness' and vipassana as 'insight'. As a synonym for samatha meditation we often see calmness mediattion or concentration meditation and  for vipassana meditation insight meditation is used.

The relation between the two forms of meditation is a subject for many opinions. Samatha sometimes is explained as a form or technique which precedes or is even subordinate to vipassana. Others declare that they are both necessary and go together in the meditation practice. 

Anapanasati meditation is described as a combination of both forms.
