Discovery Channel documentary: "The Boy With Divine Powers" (5 part series)
The meditating teenager was seen sweating and shifting during that time but continued his endeavor unabated. The cameras were absent when Buddha Boy spontaneously burst into flames as claimed by 59 eye witnesses. The flames, possibly a result of a Tibetan meditation practice known as tumo, did not consume him. They came from him. Amateur footage of at least part of the event show him standing and somewhat distressed by the heat.
