Dandelions and Buddha

When Buddha was about to appoint a successor he held up a flower in the presence of over a thousand monks. Mahakashyapa smiled. He was the only one. The Buddha smiled back and acknowledged Mahakashyapa as his next in line.

What did Mahakashyapa know that the others didn't?

Go outside and find a dandelion that is white with seeds. Hold it up...and blow.

If you don't have a dandelion available...just hold one up in your imagination. Hold it up...and blow.

Hands palm to palm,
