        Wonderful quote, Jade!  I actually have a copy of DHARMA OF STAR WARS, though I haven't read it yet.  Of course, Buddhist and Taoist themes run through the entire Star Wars hexology, but the Buddhist message in particular was strongest in REVENGE OF THE SITH, when Anakin's desperate embrace of the Dark Side to prevent Padmé's death results in the very tragedy he was trying to avert.
         
        Peace & blessings,
        Jill
         
        [PS:  I happen to enjoy looking for spiritual themes -- Buddhist, Christian, and otherwise -- in books, films, and anime.  A little over a year ago I wrote a review of the film EAGLE VS. SHARK from a Buddhist / Christian perspective, entitled "The Bodhisattva and the Boor".  Since it is rather long and includes spoilers, I will not post it on-list, but if anyone here has seen EVS and would like to read the review, let me know and I will send it to you individually as an MS Word attachment.]

        Hi Everyone,
         
        It is through embracing our suffering that we discover transcendence from it. It is by accepting life as it is in its gains and losses, its joyful times and its sorrowful times, that we reside in a place of peace and freedom.  This is the ultimate truth of nirvana.
