Location: Trāyastriṃśa. Just kidding. What a cool sanksrit word, huh?
One of my favorite favorite favorite prayers, maybe my number one most cherished is the Praises of the 8 Sublime Auspicious Ones by Mipham Rinpoche;
other than his colophon, does anybody know of any other resources or commentaries related to it? I doubt it has its own thangkas as it is not a complete practise but I'm wondering if the 8 Sugatas mentioned are depicted in any art anywhere.

Has anybody received visualization instructions on this prayer?

This is from a sutra where Shakyamuni Buddha tells people to recite the names of these eight Sugata's, the names of the eight Bodhisattvas and remember the eight gods mentioned in order to eliminate problems. So there could well be a thangka or a depiction of some sort.

All the teaching I have heard on this prayer has been oral. But I'm pretty sure that Lama Zopa has teaching published (mainly because he taught on it orally and probably Lama Yeshe as well).
