Is it permissible for the Muslim to attend the meeting of the Buddhists for cremation of the dead if he is invited to it?
Answer:

It is not permissible for the Muslim to attend the meeting of the Buddhists for cremation of the dead, regardless of whether he is invited to it or whether he is not invited to it - due to what this contains from participating with them in their evil rituals, and bringing happiness to them and showing pleasure at their activities.

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
