While the eighth Manu would be Saavarni-the son of Surya Deva and Chhaya Devi, following the present seventh Manu Vaiwasvatha born of Surya Deva and Sajna Devi, Daksha Saavarni, the son of Daksha Prajapati, would be the ninth Manu; during his time, the principal Devata Ganas would be Para, Marichi, Bharga and Sudharma and auxiliary Twelve Ganas. Kartikeya would be the King Indra, while the Sapta Rishis would be Meghaatithi, Vasu, Satya, Jyotishman, Dhrutimaan, Sabala and Havyavahan.

The tenth Manu Brahma Saavarni would have Sukhaaseena, Nirudraswa and Dwiprakara and auxiliary Devas would be as many as hundred since the number of human beings would be increased. Saptarshis would be Apomurthi, Havishyamaan, Sukrut, Satya, Naabhhaga, Apratima, and the Seventh Vasishtha. Dharma Saarvani should be the eleventh Manu with three main Devatas viz. Vihangama, Kaamag, and Nirmanapati each with thirty Ganas; Indra would be Vrishaakhya; and the Sapta Rishis would be Havishyaman, Varishtha, Aruna Tanaya, Nishwar, Anagha, Vishti and Agni Deva. The twelfth Manu Rudra Putra Rudra Saavarni would have five Deva Ganas viz. Sudharma Sumana, Haritha, Rohita, and Suvarna each having ten Devatas in each Gana,  while the Sapta Rishis would be Dyuti, Tapaswi, Sutapa, Tapomurthi, Taponighri, Taporathi and Tapodhriti.
