Another religious order that bears an outward resemblance to the Jedi Knights are the Carmelites. One could say they wear an “inverted” Jedi robe as they wear a brown habit with a tan cloak that goes on the top. This reverses the Jedi’s garb which consists of a brown cloak and tan clothes underneath.

Carmelites are known for their spiritual wisdom, practicing meditation and contemplation that brings them to great spiritual heights.

While the Jedi’s religious beliefs are more akin to Buddhist teachings, they also practice meditation and are sought out for their spiritual insights.
