I think it is important to pick a practice and stick with it. I am a
Zen practitioner, regardless of what I read. I take all my reading,
studying, doing whatever else I do to be a part of that practice.
I'm not into creating some new religion where you wake up at 4:30 go
to the zendo to sing Hallelujiah at the top of your lungs before
chanting the heart sutra and then reading from the Torah. (Though
that sounds like fun.)
