Is there any religion that does not say there the own way to heaven/enlightenment etc.
Most religions say that theirs is the right way and the rest are wrong is their any religion that says there is not the only way to God or there are many ways.

Probably the Hindu religion. I think there are others, but not ones I can name off the top of my head.
Surah al-Maidah, Verse 48
To every one of you We have appointed a right way and a traced-out Way. If God had willed, He would have made you one nation; but that He may try you in what has come to you. So strive as in a race in all virtues; unto God shall you return, all together; and He will tell you of that whereon you were at variance.
Surah Al-Baqarah verse 62
Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Ah, ive had buddhist monks and shaolun disciples tell me that different religions are just different routes that we all take to get to the same place, even their own. That place being, experience of the divine.
24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
