- "The Force is with me,
And I am one with the Force;
And I fear nothing,
Because all is as the Force wills it."
- ―The Guardian's Mantra, from Collected Poems, Prayers, and Meditations on the Force
The Guardian's Mantra was a prayer spoken by members of the Guardians of the Whills, who protected the Temple of the Kyber in Jedha City on Jedha. The Mantra, written by an unknown author, was found in Collected Poems, Prayers, and Meditations on the Force, edited by a Disciple of the Whills named Kozem Pel. The Mantra was spoken during times when spiritual guidance from the Force was needed.
Following the execution of Order 66 in 19 BBY, former Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano, on the run from mind-controlled clone troopers aboard a Venator-class Star Destroyer in hyperspace, recited part of the Guardian's Mantra while using the Force to search for the control chip inside the head of her friend Clone Commander Rex so it could be removed. Despite being unconscious, Rex began to recite along with Tano as she was doing this.
