Manu

 


Manu (Sanskrit,¬†Vman, “think”), in Hindu mythology, is a semi-divine patriarch, or primordial creator god, who is progenitor of humanity and ruler of the earth. Each Manu rules an eon, or¬†manvantara, each of which is shorter than the proceeding one. Accounts of the number and length of the¬†manvantaras¬†very greatly, but the Manus are generally numbered as fourteen. Each designates an original progenitor of humanity during a mythical heroic period.

The Vedic texts mention Manu sometimes as the sons of Surya. According to tradition, the consort of Manu is Ida, the goddess who was engendered from milk and butter offered to Shiva as a propitiation.A.G.H.
