This attractive booklet was published to celebrate the acquisition and display at the 1933 Chicago World Fair of a Lama temple, part of a plan "of purchasing two temples with complete equipment, one for Stockholm, the other for Chicago, making available these exponents of Oriental cults for Western study. This booklet, in which Dr. Montell has given a short description of the religion of the Lamas, its gradual development, its rites and cult, is meant to be an instructive guidebook of Lamaism for all the visitors of the Golden Pavilion of Chicago.
