Spiritism is the set of laws and principles, as revealed by the Superior Spirits, contained in the works of Allan Kardec (pictured above), which constitute the Spiritist Codification: The Spirits’ Book, The Mediums' Book, The Gospel According to Spiritism, Heaven and Hell, and Genesis.
Spiritism is a science which deals with the nature, origin and destiny of Spirits, as well as their relationship with the corporeal world.
Just as Christ said: "I did not come to destroy the Law but to fulfill it", so Spiritism says: We have not come to destroy the Christian Law but to carry it out. It teaches nothing contrary to what was taught by Christ. Rather it develops it, explains it in a manner that can be understood by all and completes that which had previously been known only in its allegoric form.
Spiritism realizes what Jesus said of the promised Consoler, by bringing knowledge of those things which allow humankind to know where we came from, where we are going and why we are on Earth; so attracting humankind towards the true principles of God's law and offering consolation through faith and hope."
It reveals new and more profound concepts with respect to God, the Universe, Human Beings, the Spirits, and the Laws that govern life itself.
Furthermore, it reveals what we are; where we came from; where we are going; what is the objective of our existence; and what is the reason for pain and suffering.
By bringing new concepts about Human Beings and everything that surrounds them, Spiritism touches on all areas of knowledge, human activities and behavior, thus opening a new era for the regeneration of Humanity.
Spiritism can and should be studied, analyzed, and practiced in all the fundamental aspects of life, such as: scientific, philosophical, religious, ethical, moral, educational, and social.
