Wrathful deities are realised Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and protectors that manifest in a fierce form in order to liberate beings from samsara. They symbolise the dynamic activity of enlightenment. Their practices are a powerful means to tame and protect one's mind.

Dorje Godrab or Gotrab Thangka
Rare Quality Dorje Godrab Thangka (also Gotrab, Go-Drab)
Our Price: £1,500.00

Available by special commission only and you must allow 4 to 6 months for completion.

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.

Antique Vajravarahi or Dorje Pakmo Thangka - 19th C

SOLD!

An antique thangka of Dorje Pakmo or Vajravarahi who is the ecstatically fierce dakini. Her head is surmounted by the head of a sow whose screech shatters illusion. The sound of the screech obliterates all concepts and sharply confides the direct meaning - the one taste of Emptiness and Form. Vajravarahi arises from the Chakrasamvara cycle of tantras belonging to the wisdom class of Anuttarayoga Tantra.

Condition: Mostly Good, however, there is a fair bit of weathering to the front of the canvas which is commensurate with age. The brocade frame also shows signs of weathering from being handled. It is also darkened from an age of butterlamp and incense offerings.

Measurements including brocade:
Height approx 43 inches Width approx 30 inches

please note that this thangka is framed with brocade but is without the dust cover, so would probably be more suited to being placed in a glass frame.
