Mbh.3.32.1589 This is the conclusion of Manu himself.
Mbh.3.35.1832 Thou hast heard recited the duties of kings, as promulgated by Manu, fraught with crookedness and unfairness and precepts opposed to tranquillity and virtue.

Mbh.3.107.5470 Thus addressed, those same gods, and men, O lord of the sons of Manu!
Mbh.3.139.7065 No son of Manu is able to obtain a sight of this wonder.

Mbh.3.186.9223 SECTION CLXXXVI Then Yudhishthira, the son of Pandu, said to the Brahmana, Markandeya, Do thou now narrate the history of Vaivaswata Manu?
Mbh.3.186.9224 Markandeya replied, O king, O foremost of men, there was a powerful and great Rishi of the name of Manu.
Mbh.3.186.9232 On hearing these words from the fish, Vaivaswata Manu was overpowered with pity and he took out the fish from the water with his own hands.
Mbh.3.186.9234 And thus reared that fish O king, grew up in size and Manu tended it carefully like a child.
Mbh.3.186.9236 And then seeing Manu one day, it again addressed these words to him, Worshipful sir, do thou appoint some better habitation for me'
Mbh.3.186.9237 And then the adorable Manu, the conqueror of hostile cities, took it out of that vessel and carried it to a large tank and placed it there.
Mbh.3.186.9240 And beholding Manu it said again, O pious and adorable father, take me to the Ganga, the favourite spouse of the Ocean so that I may live there; or do as thou listest.
Mbh.3.186.9242 Thus asked the upright and continent and worshipful Manu took the fish to the river Ganga and he put it into the river with his own hands.
Mbh.3.186.9243 And there, O conqueror of thy enemies, the fish again grew for some little time and then beholding Manu, it said again, O lord, I am unable to move about in the Ganga on account of my great body; therefore, worshipful sir, do thou please take me quickly to the sea'
Mbh.3.186.9244 O son of Pritha, Manu then taking it out of the Ganga, carried it to the sea and consigned it there.
Mbh.3.186.9245 And despite its great bulk, Manu transported it easily and its touch and smell were also pleasant to him.
Mbh.3.186.9246 And when it was thrown into the sea by Manu, it said these words to him with a smile, O adorable being, thou hast protected me with special care; do thou now listen to me as to what thou shouldst do in the fulness of time!
Mbh.3.186.9255 Then Manu said unto the fish, I do not doubt all that thou hast said, O great one!
Mbh.3.186.9258 And Manu then, O great and powerful king and conqueror of thy enemies, procured all the different seeds as directed by the fish, and set sail in an excellent vessel on the surging sea.

Mbh.12.36.1908 In the Krita age, an assembly of Rishis, of rigid vows, having approached the great and puissant lord of creation, Manu, while seated at his ease, solicited him to discourse on duties, saying, What food should be taken, who is to be regarded a deserving person for gifts, what gifts should be made, how should a person study, and what penances should one perform and how, and what acts should be done and what acts should not be done, O lord of creation, tell us everything about all this'
Mbh.12.36.1909 Thus addressed by them, the divine and self-born Manu said unto them, Listen to me as I expound the duties in brief and in detail.
