Dorje Go-Drab (also spelled Dorje Gotrab or Gotrap) is an extremely important deity in the Nyingma tradition. It is believed that Dorje Go-Drab is a special form of Guru Drakpo (a wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche). The practice of Dorje Go-Drab is a potent method for healing and is extremely beneficial for the degenerate times in which we live. Beings are affected by many different kinds of serious sicknesses and the mantra of Dorje Go-Drab, known as the Vajra Armour mantra, is particularly potent as a remedy for this. His practice was originally concealed by Guru Rinpoche and later revealed by a number of great Tertons as a complete path to liberation.

In this painting we can see Dorje Go-Drab as the central figure and above his head at the very apex is Samantabhadra in union. Chenrezig is seen in the top left and Manjushri in the top right. Vajra Yogini is seen in the middle left and Simhamukha in the middlle right. The principle Nyingma protectors are seen at the bottom of the thangka. Rahula is seen in the bottom left, Ekajati in the middle and Dorje Lekpa in the bottom right.

It is painted in the Karma Gadri style by one of the leading Tibetan thangka studios in Nepal and the artist has been painting for more than 30 years. His work is sought after by many of the great monasteries of our day and it is not available at any other Dharma store.
