I think you can't give full detail because of samaya, so I concede.
No, it is not that, it is that meditative bliss is not bliss grounded in a physical sensation, therefore, one will never realize mahāmudra.
The Hevajra tantra states:Where does bliss come from without the existence of the body?
Such a bliss cannot be described.
Bliss pervades all migrating beings
in the form of pervaded and pervader;
just as the fragrance present in a flower
cannot be known without the flower’s existence;
in the same way, since form and so on won’t exist,
also bliss itself won’t be perceived.
The embodiment of bliss is a fundamental point in Vajrayāna. This is yet another reason Vajrayāna methods are faster and more profound.
