First Sermon : After the Buddha’s Enlightenment at Buddha Gaya he moved slowly across India until he reached the Deer Park near Benares (see Sarnath), where he preached to five ascetics his First Sermon.

It sets forth the Middle Way between all extremes, the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path. See W. of Bsm. No. 13. (See Dhamma-cakka-ppavattana sutta.)
