The Buddha said that all teachings are like fingers pointing to the moon.
They are not the moon themselves.
All traditions point to the moon, as far as I can tell.
Though none of them are the moon itself.
The moon is the direct realization of emptiness, it seems to me.
When someone says you MUST pick only one tradition, unless there's a practical reason for it, I feel like that's the work of the ego trying to construct an identity.
