Is Yoda a Zen Master?

Young Adult---Take heart: there are Buddhist books that speak the language of young people--and youthful adults.

Is Yoda a Zen Master? What might Jedi training be like? Is the story of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader part of a spiritual epic?The answers-as well as excitement, adventure, and a lot of fun-are here! The Dharma of Star Wars uses George Lucas' beloved modern saga and the universal discoveries of the Buddha to illuminate each other in playful and unexpectedly rewarding ways. Bortolin even reveals satisfying depths to the second trilogy of movies-the ones that met with what can understatedly be called a less-than-warm critical reception.
The Dharma of Star Wars gives you an inpsiring and totally new take on this timeless saga, from A New Hope all the way up to 2005's Revenge of the Sith. Great fun for any Star Wars fan. Imagine The Power of Myth... with lightsabers!-----------no blog: http://blogs.starwars.com/dharmaofstarwars/23

yoda say:“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.”
“Named must your fear be before banish it you can.”
“Oh! Great warrior! Wars not make one great.”
“Feel the force!”
“Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.”
“You will find only what you bring in.”
” Grave danger you are in. Impatient you are.”
” Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.”
” Always in motion is the future.”
” Strong am I with the force.”
” Always two there are, no more, no less: a master and an apprentice.”
