    • Mu is the gateless gate. The state of no-self. “The Gateless Gate, which is a 13th-century collection of Chan or Zen kōans, uses the word wu or mu in its title (Wumenguan or Mumonkan 無門關) and first kōan case (“Joshu’s Dog” 趙州狗子). Chinese Chan calls the word mu 無 “the gate to enlightenment”.[9] The Japanese Rinzai school classifies the Mu Kōan as hosshin 発心 “resolve to attain enlightenment”, that is, appropriate for beginners seeking kenshō “to see the Buddha-nature”‘.[10] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu_(negative)
