MANU

Creator God who runs the Save The Humans campaign

A sort of celestial NOAH, he repopulates the world with humans after major disasters.

Apparently he once looked after VISHNU when he was a tiny fish, and nurtured him to full fishliness. Afterwards, VISHNU repaid him by warning him of the mighty flood and how he could be the only being to survive it.

Apparently there are supposed to be fourteen wash-it-all-away floods before the world ends. Each time it happens, MANU will be there to man the boat.

So far we are about half way; the floods can be millions of years apart, so there is no need for immediate panic.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Manu graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Manu movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Manu statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Manu. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
