Preface of the First Edition
“It has been a pleasure to compose this very first Institutional Dictionary covering the vast majority of Astronist terms that have emerged during the Founding era. As this is the First Edition, we must remember that it will continue to improve and expand as its editions progress. I’m proud to present this dictionary to the world for those wish to grasp the depth of Astronism and I’m sure this dictionary will be positively received. Each definition has been authoritatively created via an intensive celestial mode experienced by myself. Each definition has been composed to the best of my current knowledge and ability in defining these many aspects of the Astronist philosophy and religion. In years to come, we will reflect on this very First Edition as the starting point of a special series of books called the Institutional Reference Works that present the Astronist way of life in a new, unique form for people young and old to understand. I hope you enjoy reading these definitions just as much as I have enjoyed establishing this extensive work.” – Cometan, founder of Astronism and padron incumbent of the Astronist Institution
