Putting others first ~ Chögyam Trungpa

You take up the bodhisattva path, the path of those who are dedicated to helping others, with the attitude of working for others first. You begin to give up your own personal struggle to survive and maintain yourself. Beyond that, you can expand further and develop into an ultimately genuine and good person. You do not put your own situation first; you put others first. Therefore, you become more reasonable.
