I think it depends on the individual. Some people are capable of taking a broad view, seeing everything as different versions of one thing and making it work. Some people get confused with too many options and need to adhere to one discipline. I'm the former... I take a broad view. I'm an unabashed universalist syncretic henotheist, specifically a Hindu-Buddhist-Daoist Syncretic Henotheist. It works for me.
Worthy, wise and virtuous: Who is energetic and not indolent, in misfortune unshaken,
flawless in manner and intelligent, such one will honor gain. - Digha Nikaya III 273
