is a largely unorganized religion, although several groups have been organized for the purpose of teaching. One such group, the Temple of the Jedi Order
, uses this symbol to represent itself and its teachings.
The symbol represents three primary lessons. The first is the five lines of the Jedi Code
, which are represented by the outer five-point star. The Jedi Code is widely accepted among various Jedi groups and individuals.
The second lesson is the Sixteen Basic Lessons of the Jedi
, which is represented by the sixteen-point inner star. The exact form of these lessons is specific to this group, although the general teachings are widely held among other Jedi.
The third lesson is to live in balance with the living Force of Creation as represented by the balance of light and dark within the entire symbol.
