Sambhavā (सम्भवा):—One of the twelve guṇas associated with Piṇḍa, the seventh seat of the Svādhiṣṭhāna-chakra. According to tantric sources such as the Śrīmatottara-tantra and the Gorakṣasaṃhitā (Kādiprakaraṇa), these twelve guṇas are represented as female deities. According to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā however, they are explained as particular syllables. They (e.g. Sambhavā) only seem to play an minor role with regard to the interpretation of the Devīcakra (first of five chakras, as taught in the Kubjikāmata-tantra).Source: archive.org: Vijnana Bhairava or Divine Consciousness
Śāmbhava (शाम्भव) refers to a category of dhāraṇās according to the Śaivāgamas. The term dhāraṇā refers to a particular way “concentrating the mind”, and can be seen as a means of attaining the ultimate truth.Source: Shodhganga: Mantra-sādhana: Chapter One of the Kakṣapuṭatantra
Śāmbhava (शाम्भव) is the name of an Āgama or Tantra mentioned in the Kakṣapuṭatantra verse 1.5-7.—“At a previous time, when Pārvatī asked him, Śaṅkara told of the attainments of vidyā in the wide worldly life, in various ways. I observed each teaching taught also by the troops of Gods, Siddhas (those who have attained supernatural power), Munis (saints), Deśikas (spiritual teachers), and Sādhakas (tantric practicioners). They are [, for example]: Śāmbhava... I shall carefully extract all the above-mentioned āgamas, which are transmitted from mouth to mouth, like butter extracted from coagulated milk”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.

It is classified as a medicinal plant in the system of Āyurveda (science of Indian medicine) and is used throughout literature such as the Suśrutasaṃhita and the Carakasaṃhitā. The synonym was identified in the Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 12.28), which is a 13th century medicinal thesaurus.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
Sambhava (सम्भव):—The third Tīrthaṅkara (Janism recognizes 24 such teachers or Siddhas). His name can also be spelled as Saṃbhava (संभव) and he is also known as Sambhavanātha (or Saṃbhavanātha). His colour is gold (kāñcana), according to Aparājitapṛcchā (221.5-7). His height is 400 dhanuṣa (a single dhanuṣa (or, ‘bow’) equals 6 ft), thus, roughly corresponding to 732 meters. His emblem, or symbol, is an Horse.
Sambhava’s father is Jitari and his mother is Senā according to Śvetāmbara but Suṣeṇā according to Digambara. It is an ancient Jain practice to worship the Tīrthaṅkara’s parents in various rites, such as the pratiṣṭhāvidhi, according to the Ācāradinakara (14th century work on Jain conduct written by Vardhamāna Sūri).Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Sambhava (सम्भव) (also Śambhava) refers to the third of the twenty-four Tīrthaṅkaras praised in the first book (ādīśvara-caritra) [chapter 1] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.
Accordingly, “[...] we worship the Arhats, who at all times and all places purify the people of the three worlds by their name, representation, substance, and actual existence. [...] May the words of the Lord of the World, Holy Sambhava, prevail at the time of his preaching—words that resemble rivers in the garden of all the souls who can attain emancipation”.
Sambhava is the son of Jitāri and Senā (Senādevī), according to chapter 3.1, “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”.Source: University of Cambridge: Jainism
Saṃbhava (संभव) refers to one of the 70 teachers mentioned in the Kharataragacchapaṭṭāvalī: a Sanskrit text listing the heads or pontiffs (sūri) of the Kharataragaccha, one of the most important Śvetāmbara monastic orders. The Kharatara-gaccha is especially rooted in Rajasthan. The text includes a narration of events in their lives (i.e., of Saṃbhava), and can thus be called a Kharataragacchapaṭṭāvalī
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

sambhava (संभव).—m (S) Suitableness or reasonableness of being; hence possibility, probability, likelihood. 2 Connection and congruity as apprehended or apparent; apprehension or view of as possible, probable, or real. Ex. tikaḍacēṃ pāṇī havā kasēṃ āhē mhaṇūna tū jēvhāṃ vicāratōsa tēvhāṃ tū tikaḍē rahāyāsa jāṇāra asā malā sambhava hōtō. 3 Consistency, conformity, correspondence, co-aptation or adaptation, adequateness or agreeableness, appropriate connection or relation. 4 Birth, production, rising into being. Note. We may here, as we might under innumerable other words have done, direct the learner's attention to the two forms of grammatical composition which are constantly occurring,--the tatpuruṣa and the bahuvrīhi. rōgasambhava, kaphasambhava, pittasambhava, parjanyasambhava, ariṣṭasambhava, kēśasambhava, asthisambhava, utpātasambhava, puṇyasambhava, pāpasambhava, dōṣa-sukha-duḥkha-rāga-harṣa-santāpa &c.-sambhava (Production or birth of disease, phlegm, bile &c.) are instances of the first; padmasambhava, yōnisambhava, sūryasambhava, kāṣṭhasambhava, mṛtsambhava, tṛṇasambhava &c. (Produced from the lotus, womb, sun, wood, earth &c.) are instances of the second. Compounds of these kinds are, as it will readily be seen, incalculably useful; and they may be multiplied by the scholar absolutely without end. 5 S Mixing or mixture; combining or combination;--the act or the product of it.Source: DDSA: The Aryabhusan school dictionary, Marathi-English

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
