The Wisdom of Mu

As mentioned in the About page, Mel Ash has been contributing poetry and calligraphy to Zen Balls. Mel’s poetry is often signed with “Mu,” a shortened version of his Buddhist name “Jeong Mu Poep Sa,” meaning “Clear Emptiness Dharma Teacher.” Consequently, the pieces of wisdom collected during the game appear as items with the lettering “Mu say” on them.

The game has five sections, each with ten levels; and the poetry will be formatted as five zen teachings, each composed of ten short two-part poems. Here are some screenshots of the poetry in the game:
