MIND CONTROLS BODY IN EXTREME EXPERIMENTS
In a monastery in northern India, Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, they entered a state of deep meditation.
Other monks soaked 3-by-6-foot sheets in cold water (49 degrees) and placed them over the meditators’ shoulders. For untrained people, such frigid wrappings would produce uncontrolled shivering.
If body temperatures continue to drop under these conditions, death can result. But it was not long before steam began rising from the sheets. As a result of body heat produced by the monks during meditation, the sheets dried in about an hour.
So basically during meditation, the monk’s body produces enough heat to dry cold, wet sheets put over his shoulders in a frigid room
Isn’t that amazing?
