Venerable Ru Jun brings up this teaching in his discourse.
at the 1431min mark:
(it is very difficult to encounter such a teaching, that one should “love others more than yourself”)
Venerable explains why that is so using the perspective of Karma. We would be committing actions that are on the opposing end to such a teaching - that of “loving ourselves more than others 爱自胜他”.
Thus, we should contemplate the meaning being this teaching and treasure it.
Venerable Ru Jun provides an story to go along with this discourse.

This line from the story made me reflect:
(if I was really doing it for his benefit, why should I get angry)
I have often gotten angry when my good intentions are not recognised.
It shows very clearly that I am still doing things for my own benefit.
much gratitude to Venerable for his sharing.
