Summary
Travel to New York, where Shaolin Monk, Shifu Shi Yan Ming, from China's Henan Province immerses his hand in sub-freezing water and breaks boards on his torso <U+2013> without even flinching. In India, meet a group of Sadhu holy men who sit in a ring of fire, quietly meditating while flames rage mere inches away from their skin. And follow a unique extremist as he subjects himself to self-mutilation during the curious Easter week rites of the Philippine village, San Pedro Cutud. Witness the impressive physical and mental methodologies behind these stunning triumphs of the will and learn how these mere mortals can withstand the most excruciating pain imaginable
