Dunno where you get that stuff from. But if you do those things, the universe may find it in herself to forgive you. I hope so, for one.

Confirmed or not, the experience stands on it's own. The experience can be regarded as quintessentially nothing special, if the student is humble. Otherwise, he may be likely to wind up on a zen blog bragging about it, how long it lasted, how he now pals around with the roshi as a virtual co-teacher, knows about or may even have participated in some aspect of another student's development through related teaching, etc. Not a good look, imo. I.e., not graceful!
