A YouTube video of a monk in
Thailand praying calmly in a pot of
boiling oil has recently been
making the rounds online, leaving
shocked viewers wondering how
the monk did it without writhing in
pains.
The monk, from Thailand’s Nong
Bua Lamphu province, according to
Bangkok Post, looks at ease despite
sitting in a vessel of oil with fire
raging underneath. He is also seen
sharing his magical powers with
others by touching objects that
they pass to him. His followers
believe that his touch can make
their amulets or pieces of fabric
powerful. These objects are
apparently sold to the locals and
other places of worship.
But not everyone believes the act
was real. A science instructor,
Jessada Denduangboripant of
Chulalongkorn University, said
there was no proof that the oil was
really boiling at the time.
“The only way to prove it is to
measure the temperature of the oil
he’s sitting in,” she wrote. “The oil
doesn’t look like its boiling and the
pan just looks strange. The pan
might have two layers to insulate
the heat,” he said.
According to the description of the
original YouTube video of the monk
performing this incredible feat, a
blend of herbs is first applied to the
surface of the container to reduce
the high heat, but the feat is still
seen as dangerous. By performing
such a test, Buddhist monks prove
their strength and determination
to the people.
