“You have to have certain skills and you have to pass certain tests,” Wang says, describing the extremely selective nature of the temple,“and most importantly, you have to have a special connection with Buddha.”

That's the crux of it. Only those who have a special relation with The Lord are given the highest teachings in Shaolin. The others are secular and simply learn the moves.

What is your question? Shaolin is a Mahayana, Chan Buddhist school.

There is secular martial arts, taught to nonBuddhists and "cultural Buddhists" who don't really know Buddha themselves but just light incense.

Than there are the special ones who discover the Greatest treasure, Buddha. They have a higher understanding and are Shaolin masters.
