WHAT DOES JEDI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Jedi

The Jedi /ˈdʒɛˌdaɪ/ are a monastic, spiritual, and academic organization in the fictional Star Wars universe. The fictional organization has inspired a religion in the real world, Jediism. As depicted in the franchise's canon, Jedi study, serve and utilize a mystical power called the Force, in order to help and protect those in need. For many generations the Jedi served as a paramilitary for the Galactic Republic and the galaxy at large to prevent conflict and political instability including playing a leading role in the later Clone Wars. As sanctioned guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, they mediated negotiations among planets and rival factions and, if necessary, use their formidable martial art skills, agility and wisdom to quickly end unrest or neutralize dangerous individuals or threats. The Jedi are governed by a Council, consisting of twelve of the wisest and most powerful "force-sensitive" members of the Jedi Order. They are bound to a code of ethics, morality, principles, honor and justice.
