Question on 1000 arm Chenrezig Sadhana

Post by Johnny Dangerous »

Years ago I was lucky enough to receive a 1000 arm Chenrezig initiation from HHST 41. It was a brief initiation (2 hours or something I think) with a very small sadhana. I think I remember the visualization instructions, but I did not write them down and the sadhana merely contains refuge/bodhcitta, the mantras, and a dedication. I am wondering if official visualizations exist for such a short and condensed practice, and whether they are written down anywhere. I can sort of figure it out given what was said at the initiation, but I wouldn't mind a written reference.
May the eyes of living beings be gladdened by skies made splendid by clouds
that lightnings garland, while on earth below, the peacocks dance with joy as
showers of rain, falling gently, approach.
