Alternative Star Wars Saga

The Jedi Code was a guiding principle of the Jedi Order.

"These simple words give the Order clarity, unity, and purpose."

The Jedi Code was one of the foremost tenets of the Jedi Order that acted as a code of conduct for all Jedi, establishing rules and behavioral norms that the Jedi were to live by.

The Code[]

The Jedi Code was a mantra made up of five lines. During the Alsakan Crisis and the Great Hutt Wars, the Jedi Code was:[1]

Emotion, yet peace
Ignorance, yet knowledge
Passion, yet serenity
Chaos, yet harmony
Death, yet the force.

Over time, this mantra was revised, though the meaning of it remained the same. During the Jedi Civil War, the Code read as:[1]

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.


First line[]

During the Great Hutt Wars, the first line was taught as meaning that emotions were not inherently bad or wrong. The goal of a Jedi, then, was to control their emotions, particularly those such as love, anger, resentment, fear, and excitement. The Jedi taught that emotions could cloud one's judgment and cause them to make decisions without properly weighting the consequences, so emotions were to be transcended and Jedi were to seek inner peace.[1]
