Is Buddhism one religion or many?

Many Buddhists don’t consider Buddhism to be a religion, but a philosophy. There are many different sects within Buddhism, like Mahayana or Zen, which use different techniques to understand the true nature of reality, and interpret the teachings given by the Buddha somewhat differently. Most of those sects believe that the other sects are all valid interpretations of Dharma, though there are some who think theirs is the only way.
