: I don't know all the different traditions either. I just began reading everything I could find. Read "Awakening the Buddha Within" by Lama Suri Das. It will point you in the right direction and answer many of the questions you have asked. Also read "Loving Kindness" by Sharon Salzberg. This is a very nice book and is good for a beginner.
: Hope this helps,
Thank you for the recomendation, I ordered both books from Amazon.com, along with Buddhist Scriptures, A Buddhist Bible, The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama and Everyday Mind:366 Reflections on the Buddhist Path. I guess thats a start.
