Astro-Laotian philosophy, or Laotian Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in Laos under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Lao People’s Democratic Republic oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. 


Laos is split into seventeen provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Vientiane. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism 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. 


History of Astronism in Laos

Astronism is not recognised as a valid religious group by the Laotian government and the Astronist Institution has expressed considerable concerns over the religious liberties afforded to Astronists in the country. In its 2020 Astronist Freedom report, the Astronist Institution designated Laos as censorious in relation to Astronism and the religious freedom of Astronists. 570 Astronists are claimed to be living in Laos as of November 2019 despite levels of censorship, especially of religious materials, in the country. No Astronist content has currently be officially and accurately translated into the Laotian language as of late 2019.
