I've practiced Zen for a few years but became interested in Vipassana too, As Zazen is primarily concentration based, and I also want something Insight based. However at the same time I'm not sure how many people who do Vipassana meditation trust their own wisdom through their meditations or still cling to every single thing The Buddha was meant to have said.
maybe due to our practice, and trust in others who are far more experianced than ourselves there is faith in the Teaching found within the canon?After briefly flirting with the Therevada tradition I think I'll stick just to Zen.
clinging to the teachings and testing them oneself id better than clinging to a perception of self, or having fixed beliefs.
