“The Buddha appointed Kashyapa to be his regent, saying, “I will give you my whole teaching. Keep, maintain, preserve, and spread my teaching, then give it to Ananda.” The word ‘keep’ here means to make certain the teachings are not lost. ‘Maintain’ means to connect with, practice, and live the teachings. ‘Preserve’ means not to corrupt or alter the meaning of the teachings. ‘Spread’ means to disseminate the teachings.”
