History of Astronism in Bhutan

Astronism is currently unrecognised by the government in Bhutan and the Astronist Institution has labelled freedom of religion for Astronists in Bhutan as censorious.

Due to their unrecognised status, the number of Astronists currently residing in Bhutan is unknown and concerns have been raised regarding their freedom to practice their faith. Additionally, no Astronist content have been translated into Dzongkha, the official language of the country, which presents another barrier for Bhutanese Astronists.
