The following is written by me.

The Buddha’s life condition is a compassionate state – the salvation of all mankind -- that prioritises over everything else.

Is the part in bold fine?

Thanks.

    No, I'm sorry but that isn't correct.

    A person (or system of thought) may prioritize one thing over another, but a thing (or person) has priority over another thing (or person).

    I am not exactly certain what you want to say here, or how 'the salvation of all mankind' fits in with the rest of the sentence. Please explain the idea using different words. :)

    Thanks, Cagey.

    I have rephrased the sentence as follows. Is this fine?

    The Buddha is compassionate, and the salvation of all mankind is his priority.
