I have never met any kind of Buddhist monk or nun. I have never met any kind of 
practicioner of Buddhism. I have only met people who meditate on various 
levels. Are there such things as monks and nuns of Zen? I have always thought 
of Zen as very individualistic and idiosyncratic. Zen is life. Very simple. Are 
there big rituals and ceremonies in Zen? I kind of doubt if the first Buddha  
had a zafu under the Bodhi tree and even if he sat in a lotus position. These 
are latter day rituals added on for organizational purposes. But is Zen 
supposed to be like this?
