China should secure order of Tibetan Buddhism according to law to stem infiltration of "Tibet independence" separatists, said a Tibetan political advisor on Monday.

The infiltration and sabotage of overseas secessionists has threatened the order of Tibetan Buddhism, and the government should use laws to crack down on separatist activities conducted under the name of religion to secure religious order and social stability, Basang Toinzhub told an annual session of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the top political advisory body.

Basang, also vice chairman of the CPPCC Tibet autonomous Regional Committee, said lamas, nuns and Tibetan Buddhism believers should be educated to nurture law-abiding awareness among them.

Law education for religion administrators should also be strengthened to enhance their understanding of the rule of law and their administration capability, Basang said.

Relevant laws and regulations should be made or revised accordingly, the advisor said.

Monasteries and nunneries must strengthen their management by setting up or improving regulations, which should be used, along with Buddhism doctrines, to shape behaviors of monks and nuns.

Basang also said it is imperative to nurture patriotism among the religious circle in Tibet and cultivate a team of personages who are "politically reliable, versed in Buddhism studies and morally admirable."

Monastery management, religious education and finance of temples and nunneries must be kept immune to secessionists' infiltration, he said.

He also urged the central government to increase support for Tibet's science and technological development, and to make more efforts to show the world the great changes Tibet has gone through since the democratic reform 50 years ago.
