  • I think you'd better provide more information, context or ..

  • With singular, I think it should be "on", with plural, more often "in". Aug 18, 2015 at 19:43

    This is not a sentence. Thus it is hard to determine which would be more apt. Both are good grammatically. Aug 19, 2015 at 7:43

    A more common construction for a title would be "Buddhism, the journey to peace", implying that [the practice of] Buddhism is a journey to peace.

Based on your provaided details, could be the next:

  • In = inside
  • On = over, about

It is "on the journey", see Oald. I think "on the journey" is analogue to "on the way". http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/journey_1?q=journey
