Chinese women's union trains Tibetan Buddhist nuns.

Beijing, June 12 (Xinhua-ANI) -- The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) said Tuesday that it has trained 127 nuns practicing Tibetan Buddhism since April.

The nuns, aged 21-66, were selected as representatives from over 90 monasteries in Tibet, Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai, according to a statement from the ACWF.

The training included briefings on China's current situation, the country's laws and policies on religious affairs, a health check-up, as well as a series of themed tours in Beijing, said the statement.

Chen Xiurong, vice president of the federation, said that the ACWF was obligated to contribute to the development and health of Buddhist nuns.

Such training offers Buddhist nuns new knowledge and experiences on the changes happening in this country, added Chen. (Xinhua-ANI)
