Most of the religions always think they are the right one and deny other religions. For instance, from a Christian perspective, if you believe in Christianity, you will have a chance to go to Heaven but if you DON”T, you are basically 100% guarantee going to the hell. So all non-believers of Christianity will eventually go to hell and suffer there.
To make it a little bit complex here, even not all Christians have a chance to Heaven too because there are 2 big gangs of Christianity. The first one is called (1) Catholic and the second one is called (2) Protestant. Basically one denies another and vice-versa. What it means here is according to Catholic, Protestant will be 100% guarantee to go hell afterlife and on the hand according to Protestant it is the other way round. Okay, now you TOTALLY CONFUSED! Which one is the RIGHT ONE?
Can you see the problem here? If you follow either one of them, you have chances to follow the wrong one. Then how do you know you’re following the right one? Unfortunately no one can give you that answer except for yourself. So you make your own choose and decide which one is the right one. Does this sound familiar with you? That is in fact what I call “Free Thinking” philosophy which is you have the freedom to choose! At the end, the decision is all up to you…
Well, you may still do not satisfy because you’re looking the ultimate right religion for you! Okay, let me ask you this. Do you think most of the religions out there now is meant for the good? If your answer is yes, what do you think of the ultimate right religion for you? Yes you got it, every religion is the right religion! All the religions are the right one. The only thing that probably makes them the not so right is they deny the rest.
So now you start wondering is there any religion that do NOT deny the rest? Well, there is ONE and that religion is called “Buddhism” - well strictly speaking, Buddhism is NOT a religion as I mentioned in my previous post. The reason why Buddhism doesn’t reject or deny other religions is because in Buddhism’s perspective, everyone of us is “Buddha” regardless of what religion you are. Whether you’re Christian or Muslim, you’re eventually moving towards the same direction.
If you hear any Buddhist deny other religions or said the teaching in other religions is wrong, he is probably do NOT fully understand the Buddhism or perhaps haven’t reach the 100% understanding of Buddhism. I do not surprise if you hear that because too many Buddhists out there do NOT know know what Buddhism is really about.
Well, back to the original question of this post. Which religion is the right one? Well, what do you think? Buddhism? Perhaps you may not understand what I have said so far, here you go my answer to this question:
Note: Let me give a quick high-level explanation of the terminology being used here just in case you don’t know them:
- Judgement Day – This is the day “God” judge you whether you should go to Hell or Heaven.
- Hell – A place that you’re being punished for all the sin that you have. Basically you will be suffering here!
- Heaven - A very peaceful place. There won’t be any suffering here.
