“Fiercely wrathful, black in color, he has one face with three round red eyes and a gap in red mouth, a yellow beard and yellow upward flowing hair. The buddha akshobhaya sits at the heart holding in the right curved knife and a blood-filled white skullcup in the left. In the second pair, the right upraised holds a vajra handled sword. The left held to the side holds a katvanga staff with a trident tip.
Adorned with a crown of five white skulls, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and the like, the lower body is wrapped in a tiger skin skirt with the right leg pendant and the left drawn up. Atop a multi-colored lotus blossom, he sits completely surrounded by a ring of red flames – the fires of pristine awareness. “
