When the video went viral on the internet, many people assumed he was a monk who practiced sokushinbutsu or self-mummification for a period of time.

Sokushinbutsu is a unique Buddhist monastic practice in Japan in which persons are mummified while still living.

This necessitates a stringent diet that allows the monks to dry from the inside out. However, there is no evidence that Luang uses this method.

Nonetheless, there is no information regarding his prior life.
