I came across the following post on Facebook (original text is on Portuguese, translation and emphasis by me):
BOYS MEDITATING WHILE WAIT FOR RESCUE INSIDE CAVE IN THAILAND
The former Buddhist monk and coach of the twelve boys stuck in a cave in Thailand taught them how to meditate so they don't panic. The group was at the cave for 18 days before the first rescue. The coach fasted in order to leave more food to the boys. The solidarity of the Thai people is impressive. 92% of the population is Buddhist.
Although the post comes from a very unreliable source, some information seems to be almost accurate (like the fact that 92% of Thai population is Buddhist).
So, my question is: did the coach actually teach the boys how to meditate? Is the highlighted part of this caption accurate?
