Most if not all Buddhas have Pure Lands in Tibetan Buddhism. But they are usually only mentioned in the Sadhanas.

I rarely hear of people praying to be reborn anywhere but Sukhavati. Although I have heard of people being reborn in their Yidam's (personal deity's) Pure Land, usually Padmasambhava's Pure Land or Vajrayogini's.

Does this information help? I'm not quite sure what you're asking.
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

It is mentioned several times in this book:

but if I recall correctly there is not much detail.

Here is another reference:

I think the passage quoted there is from the book above.
Through Dzogchen we can really understand what God is and we don’t have to worry if there is a God or not. God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme
