Ngakpas (wielders of mantras and other Tantrayana skillful means) are dedicated to working for the sake of all sentient beings and especially for the communities in which they reside. In the world of Tantra, Lamas commonly to do various sorts of divination or simply use Their own wisdom to identify the most effective Tantric means for dealing with a specific problem in a specific person or group. However, and especially outside of Asia, most people lack the transmission, training, and skill to implement those recommended methodologies themselves. Therefore, Ngakpas are often commissioned to do these ceremonies or practices on behalf of others. Similarly, we at Boulder Valley Ngakpa House offer a number of pujas and other Tantric methodologies for helping deal with a wide range of problems. Some of the commonly suggested pujas and practices we can offer for the sake of others include:
