Is it true or not? This Thailand monk appears to be meditating in a burning hot pot of boiling oil. But how does he do it?
Many people are asking is this really happening or is there some kind of trick going on.But before you think there is some Photoshop going on with these images, there a actually a video on Youtube showing the event taking place live.
This event was captured in Thailand’s Nong Bua Lamphu province where the monk seams to be sitting calmly in the boiling pot. Meditating and offering followers his magical touch on their objects. No screaming, no cries of pain, just a tranquil monk who seams to be defying what would be torture or even death to us mere mortals.
According to scientist Jessada Denduangboripant the monk has us all fooled with his activities. She believes the oil is not very hot and that the pot has a false bottom holding insulating materials to protect the monk from the heat. She says she would not believe any such miracle without being there to test the heat of the oil. Although she does not say she would get in the pot to prove here point.
Whether you believe in this magical event or not. Locals come and worship at the event and this monk certainly knows how to draw in the crowds. It’s true that if we we in this region on vacation we would want to check out the event and maybe even try to dip our finger into the boiling oil to see just how hot it really is.
