Suayambhu in Hindu mythology, was the son of Bramah and ancestor of the human race. His daughter Devagdhi was married to Kartama, one of the great progenitors, and bore nine daughters, who became the wives of the nine remaining progenitors. By Satarupa the daughter of Bramah, Suayambhu became the father of five other children, whose offspring contributed towards the extension of the human family. — Vollmer, Wörterb. d. Mythol. s.v.
