At the urging of Obi-Wan, Yoda agreed to instruct Luke, teaching him to be calm and developing his Jedi abilities. Yet the student was still reckless. He left Dagobah -- without completing his training -- to face Darth Vader. Finally, some time after his defeat on Cloud City , Luke returned to Dagobah to complete his Jedi training.

Though it lacked civilization, the planet was teeming with life -- from its dense, jungle undergrowth to its diverse animal population. Home to a number of fairly common reptilian and amphibious creatures, Dagobah also boasted an indigenous population of much more massive -- and mysterious -- lifeforms.
Surrounded by creatures generating the living Force, Yoda learned to connect with the deeper cosmic Force and waited for one who might bring about the return of the Jedi Order. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think -- use your instincts. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery.
The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger.
