Buddha was not a God.
He never claimed to be a God.
He never claimed to be messenger of God.
He was a man who achieved Nirvana through Human efforts.
Guru Nanak claimed the same except he accepted God within us.

How different are messages of Buddha and Founding Guru Nanak of Sikhs!
Buddha and Nanak Philosophies are not as different as we think. Guru Nanak’s view of God inside is more appealing to traditional prayer-oriented world religions such as Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs; because they believe in God as a higher power to pray. Buddha’s message was appealing to Meditation-oriented religions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Taoism, where we seek spiritual wisdom within without using the word God.

Here is an example:
If we see ourselves in others-
Then whom can we hurt?
What harm can we do?

--The Buddha

Don’t we see similarity of above quote with Gurbani of GGS: Vichhar gai sabh taat prai; jab te sadh sangat mein pai… There are no strangers since I have company of gurmukhs/god oriented (GGS, M5).

you got it very wrong, Gurus claimed to be messengers of God and claimed they were doing God's Work.
Sikhi is far superior (Philosophically) to Budhism (or any other religion). If you dont know this much then i think you're not eligible to promote whatever self published books you're promoting here...

Thanks for your interest Logical Sikh Ji. Please show me the follower of any religion who says his religion is not superior. This is religious ego and worst than personal ego. Please share why Sikhi is superior by focusing on content of Gurbani and not attacking someone who tries to understand. You consider messenger of God by sharing Gurbani quotes?

Those who look at the content and are learners is what being a Sikhs is about. Attacking the books that are cited as a source of info is sad. It will be logical to cite in signature: “Author of self-help and spiritual books.” I don’t do it because we always have someone who is allergic to books. Even their judgment is very poor to think that people write for money only. They forget that some of us write as a hobby and service. All the best with your belief.

If you don't believe that Sikhi is Supreme and Aad Sach Jugaad Sach, Why are you even here in a Sikh Forum?
Sikhs are learners, humble and don't judge. Nanak hukme je bujhe ta haumein... Haumein dhirag rog hai..Nanak neech kahe vichar....

"Before becoming a MUSLIM, a SIKH, a HINDU or a CHRISTIAN Let's become a Human first." Guru Nanak.

Sikhs do judge an ill informed person,-

Maas Maas kr murakh Jhagde, gyaan dhyaan nhi jaane,
kaun Maas kaun saag kahaave, kis mei paap samaane.
Gainda maar Hom yagg kiye devteya ki baane.
Maas chhode bais nakk pakkde Raati Maanas Khaane.

Second line you quoted isn't even gurbani so pls get informed.
Question remains, If you don't consider Sikhi to be supreme, why are you even here in a Sikh philosophy forum ?

Secondly, its one thing to be in Sikh Forum to learn more about sikhi,
But why do you go around teaching people about sikh principles when you don't even consider it supreme.

It is due to people who have boxed their thinking with blind faith, Sikhism has not become universal religion. Sikh philosophy is universal but Buddha philosophy is more popular in the west among highly educated people. The post you are attacking without thinking and understanding is declared on LinkedIn among professionals:

As far as Sikh religion is concerned, Gurbani and other sources such as scientific and logical evaluation is making it meaningful for the current generation of science and technology.

logic certainly has a potential to improve our interpretation and understanding; and means nothing more than understanding the rational behind what Gurbani says as against any dogmatic belief. I will not be surprised if philosophy of GGS presented in a scientific and logical way makes it the best spiritual scripture for the entire humanity.
