1H NMR measurement was performed for a single crystal sample of the organic Mott insulator $\kappa
$-(ET) 2Cu 2(CN) 3 with a nearly isotropic triangular lattice. The 1H NMR spectra and the spin-lattice relaxation rate, 1/ T1, show no indication of magnetic transition down to 30 mK. However, the line shows a slight but gradual broadening accompanied with only a moderate increase in the spin-lattice relaxation rate, 1/ T1, below 4 K. It suggests a possible change of spin dynamics of the frustrated quantum spins. Key words. Triangular lattice - Mott insulator - spin liquid.
