Manu Svāyambhuva

A Sanskrit term meaning “archetypal human.” Helena P. Blavatsky, in her The Secret Doctrine, states, “The ‘Heavenly’ Manu-Svāyambhuva, who sprang from Svāyambhu-Narayana, the ‘Self-existent,’ and Adam Kadmon of the Qabbalists, and the Androgyne man of Genesis ch. I are also identical (SD II:128).”
