Yogapedia explains Bhu

The grammatical traditions of Sanskrit have been in use since the fifth century B.C.E. and is a complex language due to the extensive use of root words used to make compound words.

When used to make the compound word, bhuta, bhu means "to be ethereal," which indicates a state of being. However, when used in the word, bhumika, which means both "writing" and "written on" and is used in reference to written scriptures (or sutras), bhu means both the action and the occurrence.
