The First Converts









The Blessed One tarried in solitude seven times seven
days, enjoying the bliss of emancipation.

At that time Tapussa and Bhallika, two merchants, came
traveling on the road near by, and when they saw the
great samana, majestic and full of peace, they approached
him respectfully and offered him rice cakes and honey.

This was the first food that the Enlightened One ate after
he attained Buddhahood.

And the Buddha addressed them and pointed out to them
the way of salvation. The two merchants, conceiving in
their minds the holiness of the conqueror of Mara, bowed
down in reverence and said: "We take our refuge, Lord,
in the Blessed One and in the Dharma."

Tapussa and Bhallika were the first that became followers
of the Buddha and they were lay disciples.
