Andda...remember the four essential teachings of the Buddha: i) impermance, ii) suffering, iii) selflessness, iv) emptiness.
Try to examine very carefully any teaching we are taught and see if it corresponds to these four "seals".
Bear into mind the fundamental differences between Buddhadharma and other teachings, always ask ourselves what are the basic principles of the teachings of the Buddha.
It is indeed a popular tendency to try to mix different beliefs, I wouldn't criticize any people if they wanna do so, but for those who'd like to look for the most reliable way possible to follow, I would suggest that we try to be as authentic as possible.
Be mindful, all sincere seekers of the noble path.
