मनु व शतरूपा :: वे दोनों सृष्टि के प्रथम मानव थे। इन्हीं से मानव जाति का आरंभ हुआ। मनु का जन्म भगवान ब्रह्मा जी के मन से हुआ था। मनु का उल्लेख ऋग्वेद और वैदिक संहिताओं में मानव सृष्टि के आदि प्रवर्तक और समस्त मानव जाति के आदि पुरुष  के रूप में हुआ है। मनु का विवाह ब्रह्मा जी के दाहिने भाग से उत्पन्न शतरूपा से हुआ था। मनु एक धर्म शास्त्रकार भी थे।धर्मग्रंथों के बाद धर्माचरण की शिक्षा देने के लिये आदि पुरुष स्वायंभुव  मनु ने स्मृति की रचना की जो मनु स्मृति के नाम से विख्यात है। उत्तान पाद जिनके घर में ध्रुव पैदा हुए, इन्हीं के पुत्र थे। मनु स्वायंभुव के ज्येष्ठ पुत्र प्रियव्रत को पृथ्वी का प्रथम क्षत्रिय माना जाता है। इनके द्वारा प्रणीत स्वायंभुव शास्त्र के अनुसार पिता की संपत्ति में पुत्र और पुत्री का समान अधिकार है। इनको धर्मशास्त्र का और प्राचेतस मनु अर्थशास्त्र का आचार्य माना जाता है। मनुस्मृति ने सनातन धर्म को आचार संहिता से जोड़ा था।
The humans currently live in the Kalp (-aeon) of the white boar (-Shwet Varah Kalp), a part of the Kali Yug. The 14 Manus of the current aeon are :- Swayambhu, Swarochis, Uttam, Tamas, Raewat, Caksus, Vaevaswat (-the current Manu), Savarni, Daksh Savarni, Brahm Sarvani, Dharm Sarvani, Rudr Sarvani, Dev Sarvani. Indr Sarvani. 
Bhagwan Brahma-the creator, after detaching himself from the property of anger, in the form of Rudr,  divided his body into two forms called Swayambhu Manu, the male segment (Born-on-his-Own) who was born with the Kaya-body of his father Brahma (Ka-Brahma, Ya-form) and Shat Rupa-the female counter part, for the purpose of evolution of species, who could produce by virtue of sexual intercourse. Shat Rupa means the hundred beautiful form. She was the first woman created by Bhagwan Brahma. Shat Rupa was known by different names including Saraswati, Sandhya or Brahmani. 
Brahma Ji followed her wherever she went. To avoid Brahma Ji following her, Shat Rupa moved in various directions. In whichever direction she went, Brahma Ji developed another head until he had four, one for each direction of the compass. Shat Rupa tried every way to stay out of Brahma's gaze. However a fifth head appeared and this is how Brahma Ji developed five heads. At this moment Bhagwan Shiv came and cut off the top head of Brahma Ji as it is misdeed and incestuous of Brahma Ji to become obsessed with her, as Shat Rupa was her daughter. Bhagwan Shiv gave the mandate not to  worship Brahma Ji for his offence. Bhagwan Shiv got the title Kapalik from that day.Since then Brahma Ji has been reciting the four Veds, one from every mouth in remorse. 
Bhagwan Brahma created 10 Prajapatis, one of whom was Marichi. Kashyap was the son of Marichi and Kala. Kashyap is regarded as the father of humanity. His sons from Aditi-the sky demigoddess, and the daughter of Daksh Prajapati are called Aditys (-Sons of Aditi), they were, Ansh, Aryman, Bhag, Dhuti, Mitr, Pusan, Sakr, Savitṛ, Tvastr, Varun, Vishnu and Vaevaswat or Vivaswan.
Vivaswan or Vaevaswat (-one of the sons of Bhagwan Sury-Sun), the Sun God, progenitor of the clan. His parents were the sage Kashyap, father of all beings, and Aditi, Aditi’s 12 sons, the Aditys, are the sun deities and both Vivaswan and Adity mean Sun. Therefore another name for Vivaswan is Sury or the Sun. Vaevaswat means master of the rays, another name for the Sun God. His sons include Shraddh Dev and Shanishchar. 
The beginning of Ikshwaku Dynasty. Vivaswan Manu (wife-Shraddha).

Being the son of Vaevaswat  (-Bhagwan Sury-Sun), he is also known as Vaevaswat Manu.  He is the first human ruler and the most honest one. Hence he is also called as Saty Vrat as well. Since all Men are from Manu, they are called Manav. He was the founder of the Sun dynasty. He established his capital at Ayodhya. He had nine sons, Ven, Dhrashnu, Narishyan, Nabhag, Ikshvaku, Karush, Saryati, Prashadhru, Nabhag Risht and one daughter, Ila, who was married to Buddh the son of Chandr Dev from Tara, wife of Dev Guru Vrahspati-progenitor of Lunar-Chandr dynasty. He left the kingdom to the eldest male of the next generation, Ikshvaku, who was actually the son of Manu’s brother Shraddh Dev. This was the first Dynasty of Bharat Varsh. The Kingdom ruled by Manu in the current world parlance stretched from Madagascar & East Africa covering most of South Asia and Australia. The works by King Manu are Manav Grah Sutr, Manav Sulabh Sutr, and Manav Dharm Shastr. The Manu Smrati is the first book of Law. 
MANU & MATSAY AVTAR: Once when King Manu was performing rituals on the banks of the river, a small fish came up to him and asked him to save it from a bigger fish. The King kept the fish in a jar and took care of it. The fish just kept growing bigger and bigger. King Manu realized that it was not an ordinary fish. The fish spoke to him and informed him about a huge flood that would cover the entire Earth. The King built a huge boat which housed the Sapt Rishis & family, various types of seeds & animals to reproduce on the earth.
(2). IKSHVAKU: The name Ikshvaku means Sugar Cane. He was the son of Manu and the grandson of Vivaswan i.e., Bhagwan Sury-Sun. He is remembered as a righteous and glorious king. This dynasty is also known as Sury Vansh (-the Solar dynasty). he was the first prominent monarch of this dynasty, giving the dynasty its another name the Ikshvaku dynasty. Bhagwan Ram an incarnation of Bhagwan Vishnu was born in this dynasty, later known as Raghu Vansh as well.

He had hundred sons. His estates descended to his eldest son Vikukshi.
Ikshvaku and Bhagwan Rang Nath Ji : Bhagwan Brahma worshiped the Almighty in the form of Shri Rang Nath Ji. A statue-idol of Bhagwan Rang Nath Ji (-replica) was given to King Ikshvaku to worship and he brought this to his capital, Ayodhya. Eventually Bhagwan Ram worshiped Shri Rang Nath Ji. When Vibhishan, the brother of Ravan, came to Ayodhya, he requested permission to take Shri Rang Nath Ji (-replica)to his capital in Lanka to worship. He was allowed to do so, on the condition that if he placed the deity on the ground, he would not be able to move the deity from that spot. Vibhishan agreed and proceeded to carry the deity to Shri Lanka. On his way he had to place the deity on the ground at Shri Rangam, on the bank of the Chandr Pushkarni tank.

NIMI: He was the twelfth son of Ikshvaku. He founded the city of Vaejayant and performed a great sacrifice lasting for five thousand years. Vashishth told him to wait as he himself was busy with Indra's sacrifice. So Nimi appointed Gautam as his priest and completed the sacrifice. Vashishth was enraged and cursed Nimi to lose his body. Nimi also cursed Vashishth to lose his body. Vashishth acquired a new body from Varun. Nimi was content in his astral form and wished to see the world through the eyes of his subjects. Since then humans can blink their eyes and the period of time taken to blink an eye is called Nimesh.
MITHI: Son of Nimi. He was born when the sages churned Nimi's lifeless body. Since he was born when Nimi was out of his body (Vi-Without, Deh-Body), Mithi was also called Videh and named the entire country Videh. Mithi renamed the city of Vaejayant into Mithila. Hence Mithi became the direct ancestor of Sita.
(3). KUKSHI & (4). VIKUKSHI: Among the hundred sons of king Ikshvaku, Kukshi was the eldest one. Because he had very broad chest of a warrior, he was called as Kukshi. His son was Vikukshi. Once when King Kukshi was performing a sacrifice, Vikukshi was sent to bring the sacrificial meat. While hunting, Vikukshi was hungry and ended up eating a part of the meat of a rabbit-hare at the time of Shraddh and was known as Shashad . He is said to have eaten the meat of a rabbit-destined for the sacrifice-Shraddh and was known as Shashad. This was an act of sacrilege. On the advice of  Guru Vashishth he was banished from the Kingdom. Bhagwat Puran has mentioned that Vikukshi was the son of Ikshvaku, which is due to the events taking place in two different Manvantars-cosmic eras. (Some records claim him to be grandson of Ikshvaku.)  His son was Kakusth  or Puranjay. 
Vikukshi-Shashad was  contemporary to King Pururava (-पुरुरवा) who was founder of Chandr Vansh).

He defeated the demons. He gave all the riches, kingdoms that he obtained to Indr. He is also called as Indrvah since, Indr was his Vahan-carrier. Kakusth.

(7). ANARANY: He was a noble and ascended the throne after King Van. Ravan after obtaining the boon from Bhagwan Brahma that he could not be killed by any God, demon, Nag or Yaksh, advanced the heavenly cities. The Devs-demigods knowing about the boon did not fight with him. Ravan was disappointed. He came down to Earth and saw the capital of Ayodhya ruled by Maha Raj Anarany. Anarany refused to run away or give the kingdom to Ravan. A fierce fight ensures. Anarany was wounded and cursed Ravan that one of his decedents would kill him. This curse was the precursor for Bhagwan Ram to be born in the Sun-Ikshvaku dynasty. Anarany was called Anen and or Suyodhan-Sudyumn as well. He was contemporary to 3rd Chandr Vanshi King Nahush 4th Chandr Vanshi King Yayati and demon king Vrash Parv.

Consequently, a girl was born to them. She was named Ila. But the King requested Vashishth to transform her into a boy. Then he was named Sudyumn. One day Sudyumn had gone on a hunting excursion. Riding the horse with his ministers, Sudyumn reached a forest at the foothills of Meru Mountain. The forest was the nuptial abode of Bhagwan Shiv and Mata Parvati. As soon as Sudyumn and his companions entered the forests, they all, even horses, got converted into females. This happened because of an earlier event. Once, Mata Parvati was sitting naked in the lap of Bhagwan Shiv when suddenly some great sages arrived there to have a sight of Bhagwan Shiv. Mata Parvati sank with shyness and ran to don some cloth. When the sages saw that Maa Gauri-Bhagwan Shiv were enjoying intimacy, they moved at once to the hermitage of Nar-Narayan. Right at that moment, in order to please Mata Parvati, Bhagwan Shiv said that any male except him, would turn into a female as soon as he entered the forest. It was because of these words of Bhagwan Shiv, that Sudyumn and his companions were transformed into females. While Sudyumn was roaming as woman, Budh, the son of Chandr, fell in love with her and they agreed to get married. From their marriage, a son, Pururava was born. Sudyumn, as a woman, prayed to Bhagwan Shiv to free him from woman hood. Bhagwan Shiv blessed Sudyumn that he would be a man for a month and a woman for another. Thus this cycle would continue through out his life.. Thereafter, Sudyumn returned to his kingdom and began to rule it religiously. He got three sons in due course, Utkal, Gay and Vimal. In the twilight of his life, Sudyumn gave his kingdom to Pururava and he took exile.
(8). PRATHU महाराज पृथुHe was the son of Ven, killed by the sages for being a man of vices-vicious tendencies, without virtues and morals. Ven was cruel, arrogant, brutal, torturous. His body was churned by the sages and Prathu evolved considered to be an aspect of Bhagwan Shri Hari Vishnu.

Once during the reign of King Prathu, there was a scarcity of food (-famine), grains. The citizens came to the King and informed him about the situation. Having arrived at the conclusion that Mother Earth is responsible for the same, he took his bow and arrow and aimed at the Earth. The Earth became afraid and took the form of a cow.  King Prathu chased the Earth wherever she went. Helpless the Earth turned back and addressed the King. She requested him to spare her, and pardon her. She asked him why was he so much anxious to kill a woman?! Prathu said that she had defied his orders and rulings. She has accepted the offerings from the Yagnik without producing the food grain. So she deserved killing.
The Earth said that the seeds were soiled being stocked for  along period of time. they could not germinate. She suggested procedures for procuring the seeds for sowing so that they could germinate and produce food grains. She further asked the king to milk her with the help of suitable calf with the help of suitable milk man.Then everyone milked the Mother Earth to get what they needed. Sages made Vrahaspati a calf and milked the knowledge of Veds, Demigods made Indr a calf and milked the rejuvenating extract called Som. The Asurs, Diti, Gandharv, Apsara, Pitr, Siddh, Vidya Dhar, Kim Purush, Yaksh, Rakshas, all milked the cow. The Mother Earth provided all with what they needed.
ASHW MEDH YAGY BY PRATHU: Prathu performed 99 Ashw Medh Yagy (-horse sacrifices, having defeated the kings each time). Every demigod participated in the Yagy. Completion of 100 Yagy would lead to the dismissal of Indr from the Kingdom of heaven and the 100th Yagy would dethrone Indr. He therefore disguised himself and stole the last horse that had to be sacrificed at the 100th event. Indr while returning in space was seen by Sage Atri. The Sage seeing Indr dressed as a liberated soul, understood the whole situation. Prathu realized Indr's misdeed and chased him to kill, but pardoned him being disguised as a sage and Brahmn by birth. Indr fled the seen leaving behind the horse. Prathu returned with the horse but abandoned the sacrifice, being advised not to complete the 100th Yagy, since he himself was an incarnation of Bhagwan Vishnu along with Indr. 
पृथु एक सूर्य वंशी राजा थे, जो वेन के पुत्र थे। स्वायंभुव मनु के वंशज राजा अंग का विवाह सुनिथा नामक स्त्री से हुआ था। वेन उनका पुत्र हुआ। वह पूरी धरती का एक मात्र राजा था। सिंहासन पर बैठते ही उसने यज्ञ-कर्मादि बंद कर दिये। तब ऋषियों ने मंत्र पूत कुशों से उसे मार डाला, लेकिन सुनिथा ने अपने पुत्र का शव संभाल कर रखा। राजा के अभाव में पृथ्वी पर पाप कर्म बढऩे लगे। तब ब्राह्मणों ने मृत राजा वेन की भुजाओं का मंथन किया, जिसके फलस्वरूप स्त्री-पुरुष का जोड़ा प्रकट हुआ। पुरुष का नाम पृथु तथा स्त्री का नाम अर्चि हुआ। अर्चि पृथु की पत्नी हुई। पृथु पूरी धरती के एक मात्र राजा हुए। पृथु ने ही उबड़-खाबड़ धरती को जोतने योग्य बनाया। नदियों, पर्वतों, झरनों आदि का निर्माण किया। राजा पृथु के नाम से ही इस धरा का नाम पृथ्वी पड़ा।

राजा सगर के साठ हजार पुत्रों के जन्म की कथा :सगर की दो रानियां थीं- केशिनी और सुमति। दीर्घकाल तक संतान जन्म न होने पर राजा अपनी दोनों रानियों के साथ हिमालय पर्वत पर जाकर पुत्र कामना से तपस्या करने लगे। तब महर्षि भृगु ने उन्हें वरदान दिया कि एक रानी को साठ हजार अभिमानी पुत्र प्राप्त तथा दूसरी से एक वंशधर पुत्र होगा।
में सुमति ने तूंबी के आकार के एक गर्भ-पिंड को जन्म दिया। राजा उसे फेंक देना चाहते थे किंतु तभी आकाशवाणी हुई कि इस तूंबी में साठ हजार बीज हैं। घी से भरे एक-एक मटके में एक-एक बीज सुरक्षित रखने पर कालांतर में साठ हजार पुत्र प्राप्त होंगे। इसे महादेव का विधान मानकर सगर ने उन्हें वैसे ही सुरक्षित रखा। समय आने पर उन मटकों से साठ हजार पुत्र उत्पन्न हुए। जब राजा सगर ने अश्वमेध यज्ञ किया तो उन्होंने अपने साठ हजार पुत्रों को उस घोड़े की सुरक्षा में नियुक्त किया।
देवराज इंद्र ने उस घोड़े को छलपूर्वक चुराकर कपिल मुनि के आश्रम में बांध दिया। राजा सगर के साठ हजार पुत्र उस घोड़े को ढूंढते-ढूंढते जब कपिल मुनि के आश्रम पहुंचे तो उन्हें लगा कि मुनि ने ही यज्ञ का घोड़ा चुराया है। यह सोचकर उन्होंने कपिल मुनि का अपमान कर दिया। ध्यानमग्न कपिल मुनि ने जैसे ही अपनी आंखें खोली राजा सगर के 60 हजार पुत्र वहीं भस्म हो गए।
