Mar. 23, 2018 -- A test on laws and regulations referring to the Constitution of the People's Republic of China and Regulations on Religious Affairs was held in Sera Monastery, one of the three major monasteries in Lhasa, capital city of southwest China's Tibet, on March 21, with more than 400 monks taken part in.

After his test, Awang, a monk of Sera Monastery, said that learn laws well was helpful to his practice of Buddhism.

"For example, I know stealing not only breaks religious disciplines and the monastery's rules, it also violates the law," said Awang.  

According to Penba Tsering, head of the monastery's publicity and education department, it was the first time for Sera Monastery to hold such a test in recent years during which monks would study legal knowledge each week, and he hoped this test could help improve monks' understanding of the law and better promote the culture of Tibetan Buddhism.

It is learned that other major monasteries in Tibet will also hold their tests in the near future.
