Meditative bliss placates the mind, not folding bedsheets in the proper way or sweeping the floor.
Is the purpose of the strict discipline to placate the mind? Or to challenge a mind that is placated? For example, if your mind is still and you introduce a hurricane into the room, can it stay still? It's very easy to keep a still mind when there is nothing there to challenge it's stillness. But when you throw it into a hurricane, now you have a challenge! Seems that way to me anyway.
