It can though help to prepare the ground. And in terms of spirituality and religion in general, it's probably good to have some intellectual idea of different systems, as that helps avoid dogmatism, and helps create a broad outlook. 


That's true. But it is experiential knowledge that translates into precise intellectual knowledge as well, and it is the lack of precise intellectual knowledge that results in dogmatism , fanaticism and narrow-mindedness as you put it. 


Mere intellectual understanding, even of different systems, would also probably just result in a mass of undigested information, which can even be confusing and lead people to erroneous and distorted perceptions which can do more harm than good. 


As a Japanese proverb goes, ' One look is worth a thousand reports.'
