No there is only one kind of enlightenment. However karma is like
motion. If you are driving a car really fast and you suddenly hit the
brakes, it still continues moving for a bit because of its momentum. In
the same way a Jnani has transcended the world of karma but the
consequences of his past actions will have some effect until they are used
up. Hence the apparent diversity.
