Mu said mu to Mu.
Mu was MAD!!

Master Seung Sahn told a story about his teacher's teacher Man Gong. He said Man Gong was once asked by a student: "What is the meaning of Joju's 'Mu'?"; to which he replied: "Go into the garden out-back. There you'll find many, many mu", mu meaning radish in Korean.

All the great masters are kind of silly, God bless 'em.

Best wishes,

Daigu.
