MAṄKI I : A great sage. It was Bhīṣma, while he was lying on his bed of arrows who narrated the story of this sage. Maṅki was an aspirant of worldly things and once he got two bullocks. He was ploughing with them one day when a camel came and carried them away. Disappointed he came to the āśrama and lamented deeply over it. This lamentation became known later as the famous Maṅkigītā. By the time the gītā reached its end the mind of the sage was changed and he became one bereft of all worldly desires and he acquired mokṣa. (Chapter 177, Śānti Parva).

MAṄKI II : A sage who lived in Tretāyuga. He was the son of Kauṣītakibrāhmaṇa and was a Vaiṣṇavite of great virtue. This sage had two wives named Surūpā and Virūpā. Both had no sons and as per the advice of his guru he went to Sabarmatītaṭa and did penance there. After several years of rigorous austerities he got very many children. The place where Maṅkimaharṣi sat and did penance was known later as Maṅkitīrtha. It is also called Saptasārasvata. In Dvāparayuga the Pāṇḍavas visited the place and gave it the name Sapta- dhāra also. (Uttara Khaṇḍa, Padma Purāṇa).
