The eleven dioramas in this museum were built by disciples of Swami Prabhupada, who traveled to India at his behest to learn the ancient method of clayworking. Their works take visitors through the lessons of the Bhagavad-Gita, the Hindu scripture that inspired Gandhi with its calls for unselfish actions. Dimly lit and slightly creepy—like all the best dioramas are—this 45-minute narrated tour was built to pique curiosity about Transcendentalism. If you find yourself hungry for more, go next door to Govinda’s, a Hare Krishna–run restaurant, where you’ll always find someone ready to discuss spritual matters over a vegan spread.
