You need an explanation of "mine". It should be quite obvious.

Zen is a form of Mahayana Buddhism which, objectively, is a religion.

No, that I know. What I meant was what are the reasons one would give that would make it impossible to apply pieces of Zen to ones own religion, with the intent of getting more out of said religion? Mine and Bear I understood.

Islam is the best... because not only is it not wrong to kill people, it's encouraged... and that's just awesome.

I was responding to CU's quote: "it sounds like a religion but really zen is a method used to better understand your own religion."Certainly you can apply meditation practices to any religion, as well as practice meditation non-religiously....but CU was saying that Zen is not actually a religion. The term "Zen" is misused ALL THE TIME, and in some pretty silly ways. The actual practice of Zen Buddhism is extremely trying, and can only be practiced under the tutelage of a Zen Master.
