Spiritism respects all religions and doctrines; values all efforts towards the practice of goodness; works towards peace and fellowship between all nations and all peoples, regardless of race, color, nationality, creed, cultural or social standing. Because of its universal character, it can be studied, analyzed, and practiced by anyone, anywhere.

What is Spiritism? Is it a Philosophy, a Science, or a Religion?! – It is none of them and all of them. Spiritism is a new paradigm for Humanity; so different from everything which has existed or exists, that we can affirm it without proselytism.
