As the positive forces are believed to be at a low point and the negative forces are strong during Ngenpa Guzom, people do not engage themselves in wholesome and meritorious deeds. Most people stay at home resting and having a free relaxing time. People are dissuaded from undertaking important and positive activities such as construction, consecration, empowerment, charity, enthronement, funerals and trade. Families get together to eat a special meal and men often spend the day playing games. Furthermore, according to the tradition, the negativity of Ngenpa Guzom is countervailed by Zangpo Chuzom (བཟང་པོ་བཅུ་འཛོམས་) or the day of ten goods, which falls on the following day.
