Indian contributions to the American religious landscape are showcased as part of Beyond Bollywood. Here, Swami Vivekananda and guests at Green Acre School, Eliot, Maine, ca. 1894. This school, a meeting-place for the study of world religions, was just one stop on a tour in which Vivekenanda introduced the West to Hinduism and yoga.
