According to DailyMail –

A tourist who joined in the search after a member of her bus party went missing was able to help track the woman down – when she realised it was herself they were looking forward. The woman was declared missing from a party touring the Eldgja volcanic region in south Iceland after getting off the party’s bus to freshen up.

This includes taking off the heads, inspecting inside the engine thoroughly making sure there are no irregularities, and checking to make sure that oil is being applied in key areas they way it was engineered to do so.

Wikipedia explains Sokushinbutsu –

Sokushinbutsu () refers to a practice of Buddhist monks observing Asceticism to the point of death and entering mummification while alive.[1] This process of self-mummification was mainly practiced in Yamagata in Northern Japan between the 11th and 19th century, by members of the Japanese Vajrayana school of Buddhism called Shingon (“True Word”).
