Can devotees of other religions practice Buddhism?

Buddhism is the law of nature, a way of life, and as such can be practised by all people, irrespective of their creeds, cultures and beliefs.  Besides sharing certain commonalities with other major faiths such as loving kindness, compassion, equality, equanimity, giving, Buddhism also teaches us to how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life, to understand life and death, and to be free from attachment and suffering. Of course, the very core Buddhist doctrines may not be compatible with other religions but one is free to choose one's preferred direction in that final transcendent state of cultivation.
