Interesting video. I wonder how he did it.

OP:


the camera cuts to the host several times, during those times, something is slid under the monk.

when the levitation begins, no profile shots of the monk are seen. they keep face on to him the entire time so that the plate he's setting on and the arm lifting him from behind aren't seen.

the host, cameramen, and producers are in on it, to increase viewers.

There are dozens of professional magicians who could do it better and keep the camera on the subject constantly.

I want to say one other thing: this does not appear to be either Hindu or Buddhist.  The colors of the covering and the man's dress are all wrong.  I can't be sure about Hinduism but this is not a Buddhist event.

And that's the thing, they didn't have the old fellow come to them and demonstrate his abilities, they went to him. To his stage, where he performs, where he is in control of the setup.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

here is a candid camera show, showing 'jesus' walkjing on water (as per Criss Angel and Dynamo), and levitating. Pay attention to the levitation.

Remember this is a PRANK show, as if you needed reminding, but the point I make is about the previously discussed levitations and stuff being - well- explainable

watch it all!!

I would hope most people have gotten past the point where they are impressionable by miracles and wonders.

Fake. The whole scene is fake actually. Why is there camera cuts? Why do they show behind him before he levitates, but not while he levitates? Because he is sitting on a teeter totter like contraption, and someone behind the curtain is just lifting him up slowly. Classic stage levitation trick.
