He gave up his austere penances and his friends, the Pañcavaggiya monks, before Gautama (the Buddha-to-be) attained enlightenment. Buddha left Uruvela and traveled to Isipatana to rejoin them because, seven weeks after his enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, using his spiritual powers, he had seen that to understand Dharma quickly, his five former companions would be able. Gautama Buddha had no money while traveling to Sarnath, to pay the ferryman to cross the Ganges, so he crossed it through the air. He abolished the toll for ascetics, later when King Bimbisara heard of this. With the teachings of the Dharma, Gautama Buddha found his five former companions and enlightened them. At that time, the Sangha was founded, the community of the enlightened ones. The sermon was his first sermon, called the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, which Buddha gave to the five monks. On the full-moon day of Asalha Puja, it was given. At the Mulagandhakuti, Buddha subsequently also spent his first rainy season at Sarnath. To 60 in number (after Yasa and his friends had become monks), the Sangha had grown by then, and so to travel alone and teach the Dharma, Buddha sent them out in all directions.
