It is so true. You can't do anything for someone else, if you don't put yourself first.

With compassion to self, you will come to the passion of reaching your goals.
With compassion for others, you will come to the passion of helping them reach theirs.

The Dalai Lama has always been an inspiration to me. I am working on my inner peace. Sometimes it gets away from me.

Very wise man.

Beautiful simple message. My new goal is to quit being a people please and strive for my own inner peace and to share that inner peace with others.

He had an important message - that it's up to US!

Irene, the Dalai Lama (means Ocean of Wisdom) Is the leading figure in Tibetan Buddhism.
He has wonderful common sense and good messages as to how to live one's life in a peaceful, compassionate way, starting with ourselves and spreading it to others.
I am sure others can add to this, but this is what I know and I respect him.

I couldn't understand him and will have to Google him to find out who he is and what he stands for.

I was lucky enough to see the Dalai Lama in Los Angles, Ca some time ago. He is very inspirational to listen to. I very much enjoy reading his books too.
