Recently, in order to deeply implement the spirit of the National Conference on Religious Work, implement the requirements of comprehensively and strictly governing religions, and promote the in-depth implementation of adhering to the Sinicized direction of Taoism, the directly affiliated Taoist temples of the China Taoist Association, Beijing Baiyun Taoist Temple and Beijing Fire Deity True Lord Temple, carefully revised and publicly displayed the "Code of Rules and Regulations" in the places. The purpose of this move is to strengthen the internal management and construction of the religious style of the places in an open and transparent way, further regulate the behaviors of Taoist clergy, and improve the overall image and social credibility of the directly affiliated Taoist temples. The "Code of Rules and Regulations" publicly displayed this time was formed after many collective discussions and revisions by the members of the management committee of the directly affiliated Taoist temples under the guidance of the China Taoist Association. Based on the traditional "Code of Rules and Regulations" of Taoism and combined with the requirements of the development of the times and social progress, the content of the "Code of Rules and Regulations" is more detailed and the organization is clearer. The "Code of Rules and Regulations" clearly stipulates the core principles that Taoist clergy should love the country and religion, abide by regulations and laws, and have correct beliefs and behaviors. On the day when the "Code of Rules and Regulations" was hung, the members of the management committee of the directly affiliated Taoist temples led the Taoist clergy in the places to stand solemnly in front of the list and silently recite the list text. The person in charge of the directly affiliated Taoist temples said that they will take the public display of the "Code of Rules and Regulations" as an opportunity to be vigilant before and punished after, so that the rules and regulations and precepts complement each other, continuously improve the cultivation of Taoist clergy, and effectively improve the overall image of the directly affiliated Taoist temples; play a guiding role for believers to make them understand Taoist culture more deeply and jointly create a harmonious and solemn atmosphere in the Taoist activity places.
