Q. Does Buddhism allow its followers to attend other religions?

A. We should know that religion is not an end but just a means. We don’t live for the sake of religion itself, but we have religion for the sake of our happiness. In order to attain happiness, we can do anything under the condition that we do not harm others. No one is allowed to prevent you from pursuing happiness.

No religion likes its followers to attend other religions besides it. All religions want their followers to accept only their own teachings as the best and to be committed to them without turning their attention to other religions. However, no religion has a right to limit your religious life. If you want, you are free to have multiple religions regardless of whether or not your present religion allows you to do so, because it is not that religion chooses you, but that you choose religion.
