How do I breathe when I'm working with MU? The beginning is Sussokan to samadhi but then? Carry on so deep and long in the lower abdomen with MU?

When you enter a dojo, you will do at least for a year only sussokan. This is the best way to work creatively on the tanden breathing and samadhi. Then when being given a koan, the tanden breathing simply continues, and the koan does not become a mental question, since you practice with your whole body, you simply become the koan.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
