Acala, from his mystical name Jôjû Kongô, "the eternal and immutable diamond", is the destroyer of passions. In esotericism, he is considered a body of metamorphosis (Nirmânakâya) of Vairocana whose firmness of mind and will to destroy evil he personifies.
He would assume, "against obstacles, the energy of the adept himself", thus showing the power of compassion of Vairocana. His sword is used to fight the "three poisons": avarice, anger and ignorance. With his left hand he holds a rope (pâsha) to catch and bind the evil forces and prevent them from harming. Acala having vowed to extend the lives of his faithful by six months and to give them an unwavering resolve to overcome the forces of evil, he is sometimes invoked as a "life extender".
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.
