About the Museum

The museum consists of eleven stunning life-size dioramas of clay-work dolls in display since 1977. 


Reopened in June 2016 after renovation, the Diorama-museum of Bhagavad-gita combines India’s ancient yogic wisdom and sculpture artistry with America’s state-of-the-art multimedia technology.

About the Book

The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India’s yogic wisdom.


Indeed, no work even compares in its revelations of man’s essential nature, his environment, and his relationship with God. The Bhagavad-gita is considered the principle scripture on the philosophy of yoga and meditation.

The dolls were built by Hare Krishna artists of Los Angeles in late 70's, using methods essentially the same as those used in India. The basic materials - bamboo, rice straw, various clays, and rice husk - are the same, as are the process of finishing, painting, and dressing the dolls.

To sonorous narration and ethereal music, about 200 luxuriantly costumed, nearly life-size painted clay figures enact cosmic dramas such as reincarnation, wherein twinkly diode “souls” light up in sequence between figures of an old man, a spooky corpse and a pulsating pink fetus.

Through eleven dioramas, Krishna flutters about in disguise, at the reins of the senses, on the back of a Garuda — stunningly rendered and ornamented with lightning flashes, dramatic sound effects and a booming-voiced narrator who sounds eerily familiar.

I thought it was great — better than Disneyland, really. I mean, it’s as valuable as that or the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. The sculpted dioramas look great, and the music is nice. It shows in a way that’s easy for even a child to understand exactly how the body is different from the soul, and how the soul’s the important thing.

  • This is one of the most unique museum experiences you'll ever have. It is a true hidden gem of LA and you will be wowed by the incredible detailed craftsmanship of these dioramas lovingly protected and preserved since the 1970's.
