It is said that the more a man studies religious texts (swadhyaya), the more will he increase his bliss.

One question arises:
Where did the bliss come from?

It is man's nature to be pleased when he gets something he wants.
One who does swadhyaya does not get any object, then where does his happiness come from?
On reaching this point we negate reality.
The source of happiness is not the object itself but the knowledge of the object associated with it.
The man who knows the value of diamond gets far more joy when he gets a diamond than a man who does not know the value of it.
