what is spiritism?

"To be born, to die, to be reborn yet again, and constantly progress, that is the Law."


Spiritism is a doctrine revealed by a group of highly evolved spirits; it is "a science that deals with the nature, origin and destiny of spirits, and their relation with the corporeal world." [1]


According to Allan Kardec, the codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine, it executes what Jesus said about the promised consoler: If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray to my Father and he will send you another consoler so that he may remain with you forever: the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But as for you, you will know him because he will remain with you and will be among you. But the consoler, who is the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will enable you to remember everything that I have said to you. [2]


The Spirit of Truth appeared at the right time to lead this new crusade, when humankind was mature enough, aiming at educating us on all things and reminding us of Jesus' moral lessons.


Expressing a collective thought on various crucial topics, Spiritism addresses critical existential questions such as who we are, where we come from, the objective of our existence, and the reason behind all the pain and suffering we see in the world. It is the call to the true principles of God's law and consolation through faith and hope. [3]


Spiritism exposes new and more profound concepts on God, the universe, the human being, the spirits and the Laws that govern the cosmos. By expanding the ideas about humankind and everything that surrounds it, the Spiritist Doctrine handles all areas of knowledge, human activities and behaviour; therefore, unlocking a new era for the planet's regeneration.
