1. Manavamma. See Mana, Nos. 2 and 3.

2. Manavamma. Elder brother of Mana (Mana 2) and son of Kassapa II. Once, as he made an incantation, the god Kumara appeared before him, riding his peacock; the bird, finding nothing to drink, flew at Manavammas face. He, thereupon, offered the peacock his eye, of which the bird drank. Kumara promised him the fulfilment of his wish, but he did not aspire to royal power, and retired in favour of his younger brother Mana. Cv.lvii.5ff.
