Sarnath, when the five ascetics saw the Buddha coming, they
decided not even to greet him or talk to him. They still thought
that he was greedy and had given up his search for truth.
But as he got closer, they realised that he was surrounded
by a brilliant light and looked very noble. They were so astonished
that they forgot about their previous decision. They greeted
him, offered him some water and quickly prepared a seat.
