You have probably heard of Buddhist, Shaolin, or Himalayan monks who can do incredible things. These are men who go through intense training and learn how to achieve amazing things through deep meditation. Many monks claim to have special powers, but are these real super powers? Take a look at 10 Superpowers that monks have in real life, and we will let you decide if some of these are true or not.

1. Running on water – you may have heard that monks can walk on water. Well some of these stories are likely not true because it’s not physically possible. However, Shi, a Shaolin monk, ran across 125 meters of floating wood planks across the water in Quanzhou, China.

2. Superhuman Strength – There is a type of Buddhism called Chan Buddhism which uses hard physical labor to the point that the monk is completely exhausted, thereby achieving enlightenment through freeing your mind from physical pain.

3. Maintaining body temperature – Some monks live in the Himalayas where temperature is always very low. In the 80’s a professor and his research team went to remote monasteries in the Himalayan mountains in the 1980′s to discover, decode, and document the subtle ways through which the monks manipulate their bodies.

4. Immortality – OK so we know there is no such thing as immortality when it comes to humans, regardless if you are monk or not, but this story is worth mentioning. The Buddhist monk, Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, officially died 90 years ago in Buryatia, a region in Siberia.

5. Agility – Monks start training at an early age and have been known to do amazing feats of agility. Everything from doing gymnastic moves, incredible stretches and jumping begins with training when they are young and continues throughout their lives.

6. Endurance – Monks have incredible endurance. A lot of training and meditation is used to acquire such high endurance. Somewhere in the mountains around Kyoto live the marathon monks. Legend has it that the monks of Mount Hiei run 1,000 marathons in 1,000 days in their quest to reach enlightenment.

7. Speed – Monks are said to have incredible speed in their use of weapons and martial arts. Most are probably not as quick and agile at first, but as time goes by, speed becomes a secondary ability with the years of training.

8. Fearlessness – Buddha taught that, at the base, all beings experience a state of anxiety, fed by our habit of resisting the impermanence of our existence.

9. Sixth Sense – When you tune your mind and body using all the techniques that monks do, you become more aware of your surroundings and the world you live in.

10. High Pain Threshold – Through intense training and meditation, monks are able to withstand incredible amounts of pain, or actually use their minds to feel no pain at all.

  3. Christians have many Gifts. Gift of Prophecy, Gift of Delivarence etc. I am following Christian Church called The Synagogue Church Of All Nations. There is a Prophet T.B. among many others who can deliver people in Jesus Christ's Name.

  4. Buddhism does not cure pride and selfishness. It is a moral disease that can not be cured in our current condition.
    Our world was quarantined when we became infected.
    The ruler of the universe has a plan, and that is to save as many lives as possible from this moral disease. He can raise people from the dead, but he can not impose upon someones freedom of choice. and so his plan is to bring the world to a culminating point where everyone choices selfishness or selflessness.
    the weeds will be separated from the wheat. The sheep will be separated from the goats.
    The universe is full of living beings waiting eagerly to greet us into the rather large and ever expanding community.
    Just as a father teaches his son how to repair a slipping clutch on his first car, so to will our father in heaven teach us how to create other life, like he does. He will withhold nothing from us.

    Trusting in God to save us from this moral disease is so much more than just the surface you see in today culture… We are not going to be little babies playing harps on clouds…
    We will where clothing, sit on thrones, work, do research, build, learn about the limitless potential of the body and mind.
    We will teach others, visit other dimensions, plumb the depths of neutron stars and black holes. finally learn how mitochondria came to be. write songs, learn instruments, and dance with people from all parts of history in every culture.

    do not be so quick to give all this up. Eternal life is a long time, and eternal death is just that obliteration. When faced with that, oh what you would give for just one more chance to take it all back.
    choose now, I hope to see you there.
    If you need some evidence prophecy will convince you.
    America will make an image to the Vatican. Sunday laws will be enforced. Death penalties will solidify the decisions.
    Worship God in Truth and Spirit and you will be safe.
    If you love God keep his Commandments, for this is straight out of Jesus mouth. Who wrote the ten commandments? Isn't Jesus God?
    The Truth is that God's Sabbath was never changed, the Jews have kept the same day since Egypt.
    What could be easier than not working on Saturday? The test is so simple, there will be no excuse when judgement happens.
