"Inner Accomplishment: Dorje Dudul with a body blue-black in colour, very fierce, with three eyes. The right hand holds a trident katvanga staff and the left holds a blood filled skullcup. The right leg is drawn in and the left extended suppressing male and female demons. He has the same ornaments as before [the Outer form]." (Rinjung Gyatsa, folio 728. Jonang Taranata).
