Knowledge of Buddhist Precepts, Refuges, etc..., are not a pre-requiste
for practicing zen. In fact in most cases they are, as is all
knowledge, a hindrance.
The only thing necessary to practice zen, if that is your interest, is
to sit - meaning do zazen. Pacticing zazen clears your mind of all
intellectual and emotional clutter, including concepts such as
precepts, refuges, right:wrong, I:you, beginner:sensei, etc...
Forget about all the other things you have read or been taught. Just
sit. That's enough. Anything else is too much...Bill!
