The Jedi Code is a basic set of beliefs held in common by most modern Jedi. While based on works of fiction, followers find practical and spiritual meaning in its words.

Most Jedi embrace the Jedi Code, also sometimes referred to as the Four Jedi Truths:

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

Sometimes the code consists of five lines, with the extra line becoming line number four:​​

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.

Source Material

The Jedi Code (with either four or five lines) is presented in a variety of Star Wars related source materials, including role-playing books and video games. It is considered the code of the Old Republic Jedi, embraced in the time before Palpatine became Emperor and formed the Empire. In contrast, the ​Jedi Creed is the code of the New Republic Jedi, led by Luke Skywalker.
