Kambu Swayambhuva | Rishi & King of Cambodia

Kambu Swayambhuva was the king of Aryadesa, and he belonged to the Kambuja tribe. He is mentioned in Rig Veda, and was praised as a GEM among the rishis.

Kambu Swayambhuva ruled his kingdom for several years, and at his old age, he crowned his son and made him as the king of Aryadesa, and left his kingdom, and went to the forest, and performed severe penance on Lord Shiva, and became a great rishi. He lived in an ashram in the present day Cambodia.

He had large number of disciples, and taught the spiritual subjects to them. He used to feed animals and birds, and even the wild animals would eat fruits and vegetables given by him, due to his lovable nature on them. He treated everyone as alike, and considered all the people as the incarnations of the creator god Brahma.
