After a while, he had vague doubts in his heart, so he went to Tenryu-Ji to meet the chief abbot Gasan Syotei. After all, he entered Buddhist life. He studied under him in Tenryu-Ji monastery for several years, then he was transmitted the dharma from Gasan Syotei. In 1910, he became a chief abbot of Syokoku-Ji.
