The word 'Svayambhu' is derived from two Sanskrit words- 'Svayam' (स्वयम्) which means 'self' or 'voluntarily' and 'bhu' (भू) which means 'springing' or 'arising'. So the definition of the word is 'arising on its own'.
Based on details in Bhagavata Purana and Matsya Purana, Narayana or Krishna is said to be the self-manifested Swayambhu form of Brahman (aka) bhoga ( human form ) repaying debt of good/evil karma is bhrahmana as the first cause of creation. (See Hiranyagarbha).
