The Six Ones: The government’s new temple “management” strategy in Tibet

03.07.12 | Comment?

Someone has just alerted me to “The Six Ones” (“六个一”),  a new strategy that came out in Nov 2011 by which officials working for the temple “management” committees currently being setting up across Tibet can effectively spy, monitor, and gain intelligence on those under their charge.

Since this hasn’t been mentioned anywhere in the international press, I thought I’d translate it and put it up here. Might hear more of this in the future:

要交一个朋友。每个驻寺干部都要与一至几名僧尼交成知心朋友,及时了解他们的生活困难和思想动态。

Make one friend. Each temple management official should try to be soulmates with one or several monks/nuns to understand their difficulties in life and what’s going on in their mind.

开展一次家访。每个驻寺干部都要联系一至几名僧尼,深入自己所联系的僧尼家中搞一次家访,切实了解僧尼家庭的实际情况。

Visit one family. Each temple management official to visit the families of one or more monks/nuns to understand what’s going on in their homes.

办一件实事。发挥各自优势,为每个僧尼家庭解决一件最迫切、最现实的困难和问题,让他们切身感受到党和政府的温暖。

Solve one problem. To solve the most urgent, real problem facing the family of any monk/nun so as to make them feel the warmth of the party and government.

建一套档案。为每个僧尼建立一套档案,详细记录其个人信息和家庭状况,切实做到心中有数、底数清楚,便于管理服务。

Build one file. Establish a file for every monk/nun to document in a detailed fashion their personal and family situation. This will aid in preparedness, understanding and management.

畅通一条渠道。通过电话、通信、家访等方式,建立起驻寺干部与僧尼家庭联系的稳定渠道,与其家人共同教育引导僧尼爱国爱教、遵规守法。

Keep clear one communication channel. Steady communications should be maintained between temple management officials and the families of monks/nuns through telephone, letters and house visits, so as to educate them to love the nation and love the religion, as well as to obey the law.

形成一套机制。建立起寺庙管委会(专职特派员)、驻寺干部、僧尼、家庭共同负责、协调联动的构建和谐模范寺庙的好机制。

Develop one mechanism. To build temple management committees (with full-time officials) that temple management officials, monks/nuns and families are jointly responsible for. This is to develop a mechanism for building harmonious model temples.
