In Hindu mythology, Satyavrata, Sraddhadeva Manu or Vaivasvata Manu (Sanskrit: वैवस्वत मनु) is one of the 14 Manus, and the son of Vivasvat, hence his other name Vaivasvata Manu. He is considered the progenitor of the current Manvantara, which is the 7th of the 14 that make up the current Kalpa, each Kalpa making up a day of Brahma.
Satyavrata was born to Saranya and Vivasvan and was the King of Dravida during the epoch of the Matsya Purana. Vaivasvata Manu' once caught a talking fish who begged him to rescue it. The fish claimed a Great Flood was coming and it would wash away all living things. Vaivasvata Manu ''''put the fish in a pot, and then, as it grew larger, into a tank, a lake and then the ocean. While in the ocean, the fish told Vaivasvata 'Manu to build a boat. He did so and when the flood arrived, the fish (actually Matsya) towed the ship by a cable attached to his horn.
