Yes indeed Gautam Buddha's teachings are a great deal of inspiration to people even today. Budhha's teaching's are read by people from all religions and they find nothing controversial as His teaching's were spiritual. Buddhism as a religion was established after Gautam Buddha. Gautam Buddha wanted every man to achieve the highest goal rather than accept him as God. Gautam Buddha believed that every man is equal and every man can achieve the nirvana. Every man can lead a simple life.
The politics of religion and faith have kept the teachings of BUDDHA as the property of only buddhist prople. In fact Buddha's teachings are universal and it should be studied by all rather than only Buddhists.

Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at and thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems. ...more

One sentence is suffice to say about Buddha.
He is the first revel against Hinduism but Hindus have accepted him as Avatar.
