An international church of Jediism
Introduction

Jediism is a syncretistic religion - a faith involving elements from two or more religions including Taoism, Shintoism, Buddhism, Christianity, Mysticism, and many other Religions' universal truths and a combination of martial arts and the Code of Chivalry.  These philosophies are the heart of Jediism; not the wonderful Star Wars movies themselves except to serve as parables.

Real Jedi (Jediists) are modern versions of the Shao Lin Monk, the European Knight, and the Samurai Warrior. The Jedi religion is an inspiration and a way of life for many people throughout the world who take on the mantle of Jedi.  Jediism is merely a new name for ancient faiths.  Masters of Jediism have been on Earth for over 5,000 years under many names including Buddha, Jesus,  Lao Tzu, St. Francis of Assisi, Ghandi, Martin Luther King and so many others ....

Jedi apply the principles, ideals, philosophies, and teachings of Jediism in a practical manner within their lives.  Jedi seek the Living Force Of Creation for guidance

There is no absolute or universal consensus among the world's scholars as to the definition of religion, but the following is a good one, and it is the definition of religion we generally use at The Temple of the Jedi Order.

Jedi define religion as:

re·li·gion (n)

A set of beliefs, values, and practices; a cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion; a system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared by a group and that gives the members a code of behavior by which those individuals may judge the personal and social consequences of their actions; also a frame of reference by which individuals may relate to their group, their universe and The Force.

Many Jedi follow a syncretistic religion -- a faith involving elements from two or more religions.  Jediism itself is a syncretistic religion.  One can be strictly a Jedi, a Wiccan Jedi, a Christian Jedi, a Buddhist Jedi, or an Agnostic Jedi, for example, but Jediism is a religion and a way of life in and of itself.  Real Jedi do not Worship the Force, or George Lucas, or Star Wars or anything of the sort. Jediism is not based in fiction, but rather explained more clearly sometimes by myths and made applicable to real life.
