Bhasmībhūta (भस्मीभूत) refers to “one who has been reduced to ashes” and is used to describe Kāma, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Nārada said to Brahmā: “O dear Brahmā, O disciple of Viṣṇu, of great intellect. O Creator of three worlds, this is a very wonderful story of the great soul Śiva that has been narrated. When Kāma had been reduced to ashes [i.e., bhasmībhūta] by the fire from the third eye of Śiva and when that fire had been deposited in the ocean what happened thereafter? What did Goddess Pārvatī, the daughter of the lord of mountains, do? O storehouse of mercy, please tell me now where she went along with her maids”.

Dharmashastra (religious law)

Source: Google Books: Manusmṛti with the Manubhāṣya

Bhasmībhūta (भस्मीभूत) or Bhasmabhūta refers to “ash-like (Brāhmaṇas)” (i.e., ‘those devoid of learning and austerity’), according to the Manusmṛti chapter 3.97. Accordingly:—“Rites in honour of the gods and those in honour of the Pitṛs performed by ignorant men become lost, when they are presented by the givers, through folly, to ash-like [i.e., bhasmībhūta] Brāhmaṇas. [...]”.

Note: ‘Ash-like’—those who have become ashes are called ‘bhasmabhūta’. Or, the term ‘bhūta’ may mean similarity; hence the word ‘bhasmabhūta’ means ‘ash-like’; just as in the compound ‘kāṣṭhabhūta’.—This verse is quoted in Vīramitrodaya (Āhnika, p. 434), where ‘bhasmabhūteṣu’ is explained as ‘those devoid of learning and austerity’.
