THE SPIRITIST DOCTRINE or SPIRITISM



What it is



• It is the set of laws and principles, as revealed by the Superior Spirits,

contained in the works of Allan Kardec, which constitute the Spiritist

Codification: The Spirits' Book, The Mediums' Book, The Gospel

According to Spiritism, Heaven and Hell, and The Genesis.



• "Spiritism is a science which deals with the nature, origin and destiny of

Spirits, as well as their relationship with the corporeal world." Allen Kardec



(What is spiritism.?, - Preambule)



• "Spiritism realises what Jesus said of the promised Consoler, by bringing

knowledge of those things which allow Man to know where he came from,

where he is going and why he is on Earth; so attracting mankind towards

the true principles of God's law and offering consolation through faith and



hope." Allan Kardec



{The Gospel According to Spiritism - Chap 6 - Item 4)



What it reveals



• It reveals new and more profound concepts with respect to God, the

Universe, Human Beings, the Spirits, and the Laws which 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.



What it comprises



• 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.



The fundamental teachings



• God is the Supreme Intelligence, first cause of all things. God is eternal,

immutable, immaterial, unique, omnipotent, supremely just and good.



• The Universe is God's creation. It encompasses all rational and non-

rational beings, both animate and inanimate, material and immaterial.



• In addition to the corporeal world inhabited by incarnate Spirits, which are

Human Beings, there exists the spiritual world, inhabited by discarnate

Spirits.



• Within the Universe there are other inhabited worlds, with beings at

different degrees of evolution: some equal, others more or less evolved

than Human Beings.
