The meaning of Hakuin Zenji´s truth is, while having had an experience to not hang it up high. It is not about numbers. What he is saying is that an awakened person does not stop at their own satisfaction. If you have experienced awakening, there is a huge strength filling your mind and body, which lets your throw yourself completely into society living for all beings. If it is not like this, it is not true satori.
