Amṛtasaṃbhūta (अमृतसंभूत) refers to “one born from nectar” (i.e., Rudra), according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “[...] She who offers Śaṃkara a boon, the faultless energy of Viṣṇu, worshipped by (this) hymn, spoke (the following) words free of fear. The mistress of the sacred seats said: ‘O Rudra, born from nectar! [i.e., amṛtasaṃbhūta] Fire born from the Middle Country! Vyāsa! Śaṃkara! Śrīkaṇṭha! Why do you contemplate me? Why am I praised (in this way)? Tell me the cause (of this) as it really is!’”.
