You must first mature your own mind; otherwise you will be incapable of helping others.

“So if you really wish to benefit others, the first step is to attain realization yourself. You must first mature your own mind; otherwise you will be incapable of helping others. Giving other people water is impossible unless you have a jug with water in it. If it is empty, you might make the gesture of pouring, but no water will come out.”
– Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

from the book “Zurchungpa’s Testament”
