Different numbers of Manu are found in different Hindu texts. Eight Manus are mentioned in the Mahabharata. Fourteen Manu's in Shvetavarah Kalp. According to Hindu texts, Swayambhuva 'Manu' has been called the first man of the world and his wife Shatrupa the first woman. The whole world is pervaded by the progeny of this couple. 'Manav' (man) is called 'Manushya' (human) because of being the descendant of Manu.
Swayambhuva Manu ruled the earth for years. The subjects were happy and prosperous in their kingdom. They wrote 'Manusmriti', which is not found in its original form today.
