With his left hand he holds a rope (pâsha) to catch and bind the evil forces and prevent them from harming.

In Tibet, Acala is called Achala-Vajrapani and is a Dharmapala (guardians of the teachings). He is depicted with 4 heads, four arms and four legs, trampling demons. He holds the sword, the rope, a vajra and a skull cap.
