Astronism in Kazakhstan refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Kazakhstan, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Kazakhstan oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Kazakhstan is split into fourteen regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Astana.
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 Kazakhstan including:
- Astro-Kazakh philosophy
- Astro-Kazakh religion
- Kazakh astroncy
- Kazakh Astronism
- Kazakh astronomical religion
- Kazakh Cosmism
- Kazakh space religion
History of Astronism in Kazakhstan
Astronism is not currently recognised by the government in Kazakhstan as a religion and the freedom of Astronists to express their beliefs has been designated by the 2020 Astronist Freedom report published by the Astronist Institution as a censorious.
As of December 2020, the Astronist Institution reported that there were a total of 1,342 Astronists living in Kazakhstan. Very few materials on Astronism had been accurately translated into the Kazakh language as of 2020 which posed a significant barrier to the successful conversion of more people to Astronism.
