      Obviously, here it’s just for entertainment value. As far as I know, like other cultures with a firewalking tradition, it’s used to show bravado and battle-readiness. Of course, in the old days there was a spiritual component in that people believed that their spirit or will or piety could keep them from being burned. Of course, now–understanding the physics–it’s not quite as divine act as once thought. https://youtu.be/7dgpsI1MdQI
