This is somewhat related to this other question about Manu and the great deluge.

An old book I was reading (titled "The Testimony of the Rocks" by Hugh Miller) said on p. 290 about Satyavrata that

that the good man having, on one occasion long after, by "the act of destiny," drunk mead, he became senseless, and lay asleep naked, and that Charma, one of three sons who had been born to him, finding him in that sad state, called on his two brothers to witness the shame of their father, and said to them, What has now befallen? In what state is this our sire?

But by the two brothers, - more dutiful than Charma, - he was hidden with clothes, and recalled to his senses; and, having recovered his intellect, and perfectly knowing what had passed, he cursed Charma, saying, "Thou shalt be a servant of servants."

Hugh Miller does not specify where in the sacred scriptures this is found, so I thought I ask about it here.

  1. Does the legend of Satyavrata include an episode such as told above, and if so, where is that found?

  2. In this narrative is Satyavrata the same as Manu or are they two separate persons?
