I first encountered Buddhism through Zen while travelling abroad. No Zen teachers back home but many Tibetan centres. I took formal refuge but now 15 years later I feel drawn back to Zen. How do I trust that this pull towards Zen isn't just the machinations of ego the appeal of difference?

If you took your lay ordination with pure heart, then this was not your ego. There are so many paths in Buddhism, yet the teaching of the Buddha is the same.
