Padma Samye Ling
“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.”
Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches
“Light of Peace: How Buddhism Shines in the World” (pg 29)
“From this time onward, as long as beings exist,
May I and others accomplish the general and essential teachings.
By holding, protecting, and spreading them throughout the universe,
May the teachings of the Lake Born Buddha flourish.”
Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche
