Saṃbhūta (संभूत) refers to the “construction (of an aerial chariot)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.7 (“Commencement of the War”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “Accompanied by the great army of the gods and the guardians of the quarters, lord Indra seated Kumāra on an elephant and rushed forward. Great war-drums, Dundubhis, Bherīs and Tūryas, lutes, flutes and Mṛdaṅgas were sounded and the Gandharvas sang war songs. Leaving the elephant to lord Indra, Kumāra got in an aerial chariot of wonderful build (aścarya-saṃbhūta) and studded with different sets of gems. [...]”.

(You are) also beyond the state of the Transmental. You are Śāmbhavī who awakens Śambhu. [...] (At the same time) you are on the plane of the current of the state beyond the Transmental. (Your) nature is subtle; your form is that of the beautiful and radiant energy which is the Half Moon. Encompassed by the Triangle, you are in the centre. Born from the limbs of the three lines (of the Triangle) [i.e., trirekha-aṅga-saṃbhūtā], you are completely full and reside in the sacred seat in the centre. O Kubjī, you are Mālinī who awakens (Bhairava) the Gander (haṃsa). (When you are) in the Cavity (in the centre), you are sprinkled inwardly by the stream of nectar of the Śiva principle”

In Buddhism

Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)

Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names

1. Sambhuta. A candala, brother of Citta. He was the Bodhisattas sisters son. See the Citta Sambhuta Jataka. Sambhuta is identified with Ananda. J.iv.401.

2. Sambhuta Thera. A brahmin of Rajagaha who, with his friends, Bhumija, Jeyyasena and Abiradhana, entered the Order. Because he stayed continuously in the Sitavana, meditating on the nature of the body, he came to be called Sitavaniya. In due course he won arahantship, and the verses, declaring his anna, are included in the Theragatha (Thag.vs.6).

It is said (ThagA.i.46) that when Sambhuta was meditating, Vessavana passing that way, saw him and worshipped him, and left two Yakkhas to keep guard and to tell Sambhuta of his visit. When the Thera had finished his meditations, the Yakkhas gave him Vessavanas message offering him protection. But he refused their protection saying that the mindfulness taught by the Buddha was sufficient guard. On his return journey, Vessavana again visited him, and, realizing from the appearance of the Elder that he had achieved his goal, went to the Buddha at Savatthi and announced to him Sambhutas attainment.

Sambhuta had been a householder in the time of Atthadassi Buddha, and conveyed the Buddha and a large company across a river. He is probably identical with Taraniya Thera of the Apadana. Ap.i.204f.; see also VibhA.306 and SA.iii.201, where Sambhuta is given as an example of one who developed lokuttaradhamma by developing the heart (cittam dhuram katva).

3. Sambhuta Thera. He belonged to a family of clansmen and joined the Order under Ananda, after the Buddhas death, attaining arahantship in due course.

He lived in the bliss of emancipation, till one century after the Buddhas death, and, when the Vajjiputtaka heresy arose, his help was sought by Yasa Kakandakaputta.

At that time he lived on Ahogangapabbata and was called Sanavasi because he wore a hempen robe.

At the assembly of the arahants held on Ahogangapabbata, Sambhuta suggested that they should seek the support of Soreyya Revata. Together they went to Sabbakami, and Sambhuta questioned him regarding the Ten Points.

Sambhuta was one of the monks appointed to the committee to discuss the points raised, and when they were declared heretical, he joined in the holding of the Second Council. Vin.ii.298 f., 303ff.; ThagA.i.390 f.; Mhv.iv.18, 57; Dpv.iv.49; v.22; Sp.i.34f.

A series of verses uttered by Sambhuta, moved by righteous emotion at the proposed perversion of the Dhamma and Vinaya by the Vajjiputtakas, is included in the Theragatha (Thag.vss.291 4).

In the past, during a period when there were no Buddhas in the world, Sambhuta was a kinnara on the banks of the Candabhaga, and seeing a Pacceka Buddha, he worshipped him and offered him ajjuna flowers.

Accordingly: “At daybreak King Jitāri held a great birth-festival in honor of the Arhat deserving the world, who had become his son. In every house, on every road, in every market, in the whole city a festival took place just as in the palace. While he was in embryo, rice was grown (sambhūta); and at that time the second ploughing (śambā) took place; so his father gave the name ‘Sambhava’ and also ‘Śambhava’ to the Lord”.

2) Sambhūta (सम्भूत) is the name of an ancient Muni, according to chapter 4.1 [śreyāṃsanātha-caritra].—Accordingly, “[...] Viśvabhūti abandoned power like straw, went and took the vow under Muni Sambhūta. When he heard about it, Viśvanandin went there himself with the women of his household and his attendants, accompanied by the crown prince. [...] Viśvabhūti wandered as a Muni with his Guru. Engaged in fasts of two and three days, zealous in service to his Guru, learning texts and interpretations, he gradually passed a very long time. Wandering alone by permission of his guru, observing pratimā, he began to wander in villages, mines, cities, etc. [...]”.
