We all love watching superhero movies, and at one point of time, we have also thought about having superpowers just like them. But, having superhuman strength like superheroes is not possible for us.
Well, there are people in this world who have some superhuman capabilities. But who are those people? They are Buddhist monks. It is often said that monks have brains that function on a whole different level and beyond standard human capabilities. They train their brains and bodies to do things that are not possible for an average human being to do.
Many people did not believe in their superpowers, but a research performed on monks say that they have superpowers. Monks use many things such as yoga and siddhis to achieve unimaginable things.
Here we have gathered the list of superpowers that monks have. So, take a look.
Many people in this world can't even run one mile without taking stops, and some people cannot even do pushups. But, the monks can do these things easily. They do many different types of pushups which include two fingers and one finger pushup.
This is one of the most unimaginable things that can be performed by monks. Many times monks have shown how easily they can defy gravity and even run along walls without extra efforts.
One of the biggest qualities of superheroes is that they are fearless. They can take up any challenges like the monk shown in the picture. This monk is sitting in a pot filled with oil over an open flame. Now, that really requires some courage.
Monks have insane endurance, and they achieve it with the help of specialized training and meditation. The physical training keeps their bodies in shape to do everything and meditation helps them for enduring tough things for a long time.
I don't think you can imagine someone walking on water, but a monk named Shi Liliang did it with ease. He walked nearly 125 meters on the water with the help of floating wooden planks.
I think many of you might know about this superpower of monks. They do some really tough and painful training. One of those training includes kicking in the crotch. Monks go through this tough exercise and show their composure.
I am still trying to figure out how can someone show composure while doing this training.
We know that monks live in cold places and they don't use things like sweaters or jackets. They maintain and change their body temperature with the help of meditation, according to a research by Harvard University.
Monks can also lower their metabolism upto 60 percent. This means that they can survive with less oxygen and food than the regular people.
Monks are fast, and they know how to use it to great advantage. But, how can someone be fast as a bullet? Well, a monk was able to fire a needle with so much speed that it passed through a glass sheet.
I think now you understood why I said fast like a bullet.
There are many instances where we have seen monks do things that are invincible. They do tough training which can blow an average person with ease.
Many things in this support the fact of monks being superhumans. So if you liked the story then share it with your friends.
