"What is the status of people outside your belief?" --> My belief system tells me a good Buddhist, a good Hindu, a good Jain, a good Christian, etc., are all making progress towards Heaven. I do not think which belief system a person belongs to makes any difference as to whether they will enter Heaven or not. I do not think the question, “Do you believe in Jesus? Do you believe in Buddha?” even comes up when we pass on to the next level.
