She will give birth to thy son, the highly intelligent Manu. (3-4) He having given his consent she took up from the water her daughter of a fair body by name Malini. (5) Thereupon having brought together all the leading ascetics that foremost of ascetics Ruchi espoused her duly on the banks of the river. (6) He begot on her a highly energetic and intelligent son who was celebrated on earth as Rouchya after the name of his father. (7) I have already related to you in detail the gods, Rishis, the king and his sons of that Manwantara. (8) Forsooth, a man, hearing of this Manwantara, secures an acquisition of wraith, freedom from diseases, prosperity, corns and offspring.
