Reading whatever I can find, and being new to meditation, I ask for clarity from the esteemed members here. Both styles seem to start with 'watch the breath' (or focus on an object of meditation--which I don't know how is determined or defined yet).

Jundo advised that I find what works for my life and stick with one or the other, but I don' t know enough to differentiate. I guess I'm looking for the practical, day to day on the cushion distinctions, and not really the historic backgrounds for now. Thanks much. Gassho (I even had to look that up!
