Jyotiṣmān (ज्योतिष्मान्).—One of the ten sons of Priyavrata, who was a son of Svāyambhuva Manu, according to the Varāhapurāṇa chapter 74. Svāyambhuva Manu was created by Brahmā, who was in turn created by Nārāyaṇa, the unknowable all-pervasive primordial being. Jyotiṣmān was made the lord of Krauñcadvīpa, one of the seven islands (dvīpa).

According to a different account, he is mentioned as lord of Śālmalidvīpa and had three sons: Kuśa, Vaidyuta and Jīmūtavāhana, each ruling over their respective regions.

According to a yet another account he is lord of Kuśadvīpa and had seven sons: Udbhida, Veṇumān, Rathapāla, Manas, Dhṛti, Prabhākara and Kapila, each ruling over their respective regions.
