Astronism in Indonesia refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Indonesia. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Indonesia, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Indonesia oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Indonesia is split into thirty-four provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Jakarta.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Indonesia including:
- Astro-Indonesian philosophy
- Astro-Indonesian religion
- Astro-Indonesian spirituality
- Indonesian astroncy
- Indonesian Astronism
- Indonesian astronomical religion
- Indonesian Cosmism
- Indonesian space religion
History of Astronism in Indonesia
Astronism is not recognised as a religion or religious group in Indonesia and considerable concerns have been raised by the Astronist Institution in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report on the ability of Astronists to profess their faith in the country.
For this reason, the situation of Astronist religious liberty in Indonesia has been designated as censorious. Astronists number 191,000 people in Indonesia as of 2020 which is one of the largest Astronist populations in the world.
Translations of Astronist content into the various languages of Indonesia is underway. More Indonesians are expected to convert to Astronism after Astronist materials are more widely translated and distributed.
