This Buddhist monk in Thailand, in the province of Nong Bua Lamphuman was filmed meditating in lotus position in a pot of oil that is located above a fire! The monk remains impassive during the heat time of his prayer. It is probably not a staged, simmering oil demonstrates the truth of the 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 around his dangerousness. By performing such a test, Buddhist monks prove their strength and determination to the people. Bottles of oils and relics used in this ceremony will then be sold to spectators of this amazing demonstration.
