Not to be reached by traveling is the end of the world,
Yet there is no release from sorrow
Unless you reach the end of the world.

The one who is wise and lives... continue...

vertical line I don't think anyone in all the Zen Forums know Mu...
If ever they talk about it they tend to downgrade it or avoid it. Maybe because no one knows what Mu is...lol

vertical line Because if you tell the answer to a fellow student it is either become a block to the students kenshor or he laugh at you.

You understand the high class teaching of Mu, and yet you don't understand the simple act of being kind. Even my 5-year-old daughter understands it. Watching you is very, very sad.

I don't know who this "they" is. You are the one who keeps bringing up koans, acting as if he is the only one who understands, believing that others don't and ridiculing them for it, and displaying your own ignorance and lack of understanding.
