PEACE LIBRARY Read More
In the Buddhist tradition, when a sacred structure is being built, it has to be filled with relics that represent the three jewels. The Universal Peace Library will serve that purpose by housing a comprehensive collection of Lord Buddha’s canonical teachings, sutras and tantras, writings and commentaries by realized masters of all Buddhist traditions in print and digital formats, in all languages available. In addition, the library will be a repository of texts on the topic of peace, passed down from masters of all spiritual traditions.
