     A discrete altar chamber nestled away somewhere in the labyrinthine complex of the Forbidden City (Imperial Palace), Beijing.  Three young people (perhaps students) were silhouetted against the light streaming in from a wide, decorative opening behind them.  They were in deep prayer.  Everything, certainly the woodwork, seemed to be coloured a rich crimson and this triggered the notion of the red planet, Mars, somehow being part of and sharing in their meditations.  How could the God of War possibly have any connection with this place of contemplative calm?  Is this not the duality of our world as taught in the buddhist canon?  The yin and the yang, good and evil, war and peace.  The duality from which we crave escape?  Was this the prayer of these thoughtful youngsters?
