In 1974, Daigaku Rummé returned to Japan with the intention of finding a monastery where he could train. But was not as simple as he imagined. It wasn’t until 1976, that he began training at Hosshin-ji Monastery. He was ordained by Harada Sekkei Roshi in 1978 and lived and practiced at Hosshin-ji for another 25 years before returning to San Francisco to work on the staff of the Soto Zen Buddhism International Center. In 2010, Rev. Rummé moved to Los Angeles where he worked as the Director of the Association of Soto Zen Buddhist of North America and as the Head Priest of Zenshuji Soto Mission. In 2015, he moved to St. Louis to lead the Confluence Zen Center where he serves as guide teacher.
