Reader of the sutras/questions: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Buddha was to give a special talk one day, and thousands of followers had come from miles around.
When Buddha appeared he was holding a flower. Time passed, but Buddha said nothing. He just looked at the flower. The crowd grew restless, but Mahakashyap, who could restrain himself no longer, laughed.
Buddha beckoned him over, handed him the flower, and said to the crowd, "I have the eye of the true teaching. All that can be given with words I have given to you; but with this flower, I give to Mahakashyap the key to this teaching."

Question 1
Beloved Osho, Buddha had many enlightened people around him, yet he felt something special for this one enlightened person.
Is there something different in enlightenments?
