BEIJING, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese political advisors joined a symposium Tuesday in Beijing to discuss how to advance the interpretation of religious doctrines and rules in line with the requirements of the times.

Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, attended and addressed the discussion.

Calling the interpretation of religious doctrines and rules important and fundamental work, Wang stressed gradually forming a religious ideological system with Chinese characteristics in line with the requirements of the times.

The symposium was held by the committee for ethnic and religious affairs of the CPPCC National Committee.

Sixteen political advisors from religious circles, experts and scholars, and religious people from the grassroots level shared their experience and suggestions in the discussion.

Participants suggested conducting a systematic study of the thoughts of various religions, and making accurate and authoritative interpretations of classical doctrines to keep pace with the times, so as to effectively resist the erosion of extreme thoughts and heresy.

Participants also called for enhanced communication among religious circles, and more support for religious schools to train religious personnel.
