Sprung from Body of Brahma

Sprung from Body of Brahma To continue with the process of creation, Brahma gave birth to a man and a woman from his own body. The man was named Svayambhuva Manu and the woman was named Shatarupa. Humans are descended from Manu. That is the reason they are known as manava. Cited from Weebsite: Brahma Purana
