Swayambhu means Brahma or Mahat. Swayambhu is the self-manifested or that which is created by its own accord.
In Vaishnavism, based on details in Bhagavata Purana
and Matsya Purana
is said to be the Self-manifested or the Swayambhu. Lord Krishna is a form of Brahman as the first cause of creation.
In Shaivism it is believed that Lord Shiva
is the Self-manifested Swayambhu. A number of Lingams
of Shiva adornments of Hindu temple sanctum sanctorum have been held sacred as natural mounds. The Jyotirlinga at Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh is believed to be one such Swayambhu.
