1. Māna. Youngest brother and 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 and 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 and Mānavamma, see Cv. Trs.i.192, n. 3.). He was very young when his father died, and, when the government fell into the hands of Dappula I. and later of Dāthopatissa II., he left Uttaradesa, where he was living in retirement with his wife Sanghā, and went to Jambudīpa, there to take service under the Pallava king, Narasīha (for details see Cv.xivii.9ff., 15ff). He won the king's favor and very loyally helped him to defeat the Vallabha king. He then raised an army with the help of Narasīha, landed in Ceylon, and recovered the kingdom from Dāthopatissa. But later his army deserted him on hearing tidings of Narasīha's illness and Māna returned once more to Jambudīpa. Some time after he came again to Ceylon with a large army and defeated Hatthadātha, the reigning king, and his general Potthakuttha. In the confusion which followed, Hatthadātha was killed and Potthakuttha was poisoned at Merukandara. Māna thereupon became king and did many acts of merit, including the erection of the Padhānarakkha  and the Sirisanghabodhi vihāras, also the Sepanni  and 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. and 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, with his father's help, repulsed them and crowned his father king. When Hatthadātha heard of this, he came with a large force and 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 and was killed in battle (Cv.xlv.1ff.; 52, 77ff). His mother was the sister of Kassapa II. and the daughter of King Silāmeghavanna. Cv. Trs.i.94, n. 1.

4. Māna. Called Mūlapotthakī. He was an officer of Parakkamabāhu I. and, in one campaign, defeated Lokagalla Vikkama at Mahāgāma. Cv.lxxv.139f.
