1) Sadyojāta (सद्योजात):—One of the five aspects of Śiva, known collectively as the Pañchabrahmās. They are emanations from the niṣkala-Śiva. According to the Rūpamaṇḍana, the colour of the body, garland, sandal-paste and the garments of Sadyojāta should be white. His head should be adorned with a jaṭamakuṭa, ornamented with the crescent moon. He should have a good-looking face expressive of joy, three eyes and two arms: the two hands should be held in the varada and the abhaya poses.

The Śrītatvanidhi gives somewhat different description. For Sadyojāta should have, according to this work, four faces; each of these faces should have three eyes; the colour of Sadyojāta should be white. This face ought to point to the western direction. Two of the hands of Sadyojāta are to be held in the varada and abhaya poses and the two remaining ones keep the vedas and the akṣamālā. But Sadyojāta is distinctly required to be sculptured so as to appear of greater importance than the rest.

2) Sadyojāta (सद्योजात):—Fifth of the twelve emanations of Rudra, according to the Rūpamaṇḍana.
