  Some Buddhist texts state that there are special days when the merit of a particular practice increases by 100,000 / 1,000,000 times. The question arises: what is the motivation to strain on other days?
  Suppose that such a day falls only once a year. Then, even if you have practiced diligently all year except for this special day (364 days), then the accumulated merit will be negligible compared to the merit accumulated on a special day. Have you worked a whole year without holidays for a salary of 100,000 / 1,000,000 times less (per day), if for one special day you have an opportunity to earn about 300/3000 times more than in a year?
  The motivator turns into a demotivator, eh?
