In the video, a monk from Nong Bua Lamphu, Thailand is seen peacefully praying in a vat filled with boiling oil, as the fire underneath it continuously burns. Several of his followers pass objects such as amulets and fabrics for him to touch, believing that they too will be bestowed with his magical powers. Apparently, some of these objects are also sold to other places of worship and to the community.
