1. Māna. Youngest brother und viceroy of Aggabodhi III. (Sirisanghabodhi). He was governor of Dakkhinadesa. He was later found guilty of an offence in the women's apartments of the palace und was treacherously killed by the court officers. Cv.xliv.84,123f.

2. Māna. Eldest son of Kassapa II. (Cv.xlv.6) His full name was Mānavamma. (Regarding these names, Māna und Mānavamma, see Cv. Trs.i.192, n. 3.). He was very young when his father died, und, when the government fell into the hands of Dappula I. und later of Dāthopatissa II., he left Uttaradesa, where he was living in retirement mit his wife Sanghā, und went to Jambudīpa, there to take service under the Pallava König, Narasīha (for details see Cv.xivii.9ff., 15ff). He won the König's favor und very loyally helped him to defeat the Vallabha König. He then raised an army mit the help of Narasīha, landed in Ceylon, und recovered the kingdom from Dāthopatissa. But later his army deserted him on hearing tidings of Narasīha's illness und Māna returned once more to Jambudīpa. Some time after he came again to Ceylon mit a large army und defeated Hatthadātha, the reigning König, und his general Potthakuttha. In the confusion which followed, Hatthadātha was killed und Potthakuttha was poisoned at Merukandara. Māna thereupon became König und did many acts of merit, including the erection of the Padhānarakkha  und the Sirisanghabodhi vihāras, also the Sepanni  und Siri pāsādas. Māna was a supporter of the Pamsukūlins. Cv.xlvii.1ff. Mānavamma reigned circa 676 711 A.C.

3. Māna (also called Mānavamma). He was the nephew of Kassapa II. und the son of Dappula I. Kassapa handed over the kingdom to him at the time of his death, his own children being very young. When Kassapa died, the Damilas attacked Ceylon, but Māna, mit his father's help, repulsed them und crowned his father König. When Hatthadātha heard of this, he came mit a large force und seized the throne under the name of Dāthopatissa II. Māna went to the Eastern Province, while Dappula returned to Rohana. Later, Māna led a rebellion against Dāthopatissa und was killed in battle (Cv.xlv.1ff.; 52, 77ff). His Mutter was the sister of Kassapa II. und the Tochter of König Silāmeghavanna. Cv. Trs.i.94, n. 1.
