The Peacemakers Finland has amassed a comprehensive and ever increasing library with volumes covering the different aspects and practices of the Peacemakers. This collection is meant to serve the needs of the aspiring Peacemakers here in Finland. Many of the books have been donated by the most generous Zen Center of Los Angeles.

These books are available at our zendo in Helsinki​. 

There is some Digital resources and Podcast links at the end of the list.
