The inward stillness which is attained during meditation affects the character in this way: it shows the man a joy and beauty beyond that which animal appetite can show him. It gives him a satisfaction beyond that which animal passion can give him. This he discovers and feels during meditation periods; but its after-effects also begin to linger more and more during the long intervals between such periods and to permeate them.
