The first five of Buddha's converts:
- 1. Ajnata-Kaundinya - Ajnata-Kondanna
- 2. Bhadrika - Bhaddiya
- 3. Asvajit - Assagi
- 4. Vaspa - Vappa
- 5. Mahanaman - Mahanama
They followed Shakyamuni to practice asceticism, but left him when he abandoned such practices. Later, when Shakyamuni attained Buddhahood, his first sermon was preached in Deer Park to these men, who became his first disciples.
