Is there like a book of how to conduct ceremonies and stuff like last rites in accordance with the Jedi faith or is it about the same as most Christian religious denominations. Do we have our own holy book?

Hi, Calicokid! Steamboat28 here. We don't have a "holy book" as you might be used to thinking of it, but there are ceremonies and the like. Every clergy person at the Temple is unique, so every clerical manual is also unique, though they mostly contain the same types of thing. Are there any other questions you had?

There is a liturgical book in our library under TOTJO materials. Looking over it may give you some inspiration, but if you're looking for something to carry with you, it should be more personal; there are guidelines for making a clerical handbook with the clerical lessons, too. For a more personal touch, there are many videos on YouTube detailing how to make and bind your own books at little cost.

That's kind of an amazing open view of things, most of the past religious experiences where it was all pretty set. I guess can't see where this wouldn't be more popular if it was better known.
So, it says you can pay for copies of your certification, but are there any fees with the seminary or is it like we rather you share the word so its a free service if you put in the work?

Think of paying for certificates and the like more akin to reimbursing for materials and postage when it happens. I don't think I've seen anyone pay for services or materials that were required to progress, almost everything is provided.
