Hi my question is if the temperature of a particle is reduced to absolute zero the that particle has lost its energy so it has no movement. Particles have mass and Einstein said mass equates to energy. Particles have mass so at absolute zero the have no energy does this mean that particles at zero energy have no mass?

No. At absolute zero particles lose their kinetic energy but not their mass-energy. They still have mass.
