• Indrasāvarṇiḥ - m. Name of the fourteenth Manu, also known as Bhautyaḥ. śrībhāgavatam says, In his manvantara, Bṛhadbhānu is the avatāra, śuci is the Indra, pavitra, cākṣuṣa, etc are the deva-s, śuci, śuddhamāgadha, etc are the saptaṛṣi-s. Uru, Gambhīra, Bradhna, etc will be the sons of the Manu. The Viṣṇupurānā says, Trans. Oh Maitreya! Here, Bhautya will be born as the fourteenth Manu. Śuci will be the Indra and there will be five groups of deva-s. Hear them - Cākṣuṣa-s, Pavitra-s, Kaniṣṭha-s, Bhrājira-s, Vayovṛddha-s are the deva-s. Also, listen to the names of the seven sages – Agnibāhu, śuci, śukra, Māgadha, Agnīdhra, Yukta and the other, Ajita. Next, hear the names of the sons of this Manu – Uru, Gambhīra, Bradhna, etc will be the kings who are the sons of Manu. Similar description can be found in Chap.100 of Mārkaṇḍeyapurāṇa. Note that, currently, it is the seventh Manvantara. • Notes by the editor: Manvantara is a period of 71 mahāyuga-s, each presided over by a special Manu, and characterises by different Indra-s, deva-s, saptaṛṣi-s, etc. There are fourteen Manvantaras totally (Currently, the seventh Manvantara is running). Indrasāvarṇi presides over the fourteenth Manvantara, which is also the last. Note that the description of this Manvantara in Viṣṇupurānā and Bhāgavata is phrased in the future tense, indicating the age yet to come.
