How Should a Jedi Love? An excerpt from Matthew Bortolin’s ‘The Dharma of Star Wars

Excerpt from 'The Dharma of Star Wars' on Suffering

"Jediism is a nontheistic new religious movement based on the philosophical and spiritual ideas of the Jedi as depicted in Star Wars media."

 "The Jedi Religion's biggest hurdle in being accepted as a relevant religion is the fact that it originated in an acknowledged work of fiction.

Objectors also often expect all religions to originate from a prophet who knowingly speaks divine truth, even though a vast number of religions do not have such neat and tidy origins." -Source:
