Pujas (formal prayer ceremonies) can be offered to the Buddhas of the three times to ask for their blessings and seek their help. By asking for blessings in this way, we turn away the negative, cleanse obstacles, help change unfavorable circumstances, and accumulate immense merit. Pujas are also performed to offer prayers and offerings to enlightened beings, local deities, and other beings who hinder the environment, to help calm them down and thereby purify obstacles, obtain favorable conditions, and improve the environment.
