"So, the Jedi are Force users united in our quest to understand the mysteries of the Force and to serve as guardians of peace and justice throughout the galaxy."
"I've heard of Force users before, but why does that make you monks?"

A monk was an individual who belonged to a religious community. Notable orders of monks included the B'omarr Order[2] and the Arakein Monks.[1] Because of the hooded robes they wore, the Jedi were sometimes compared to monks.[6]
