General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Google Books: The Hindu World
Aikya (ऐक्य):—Vīraśaivism, as interpreted by Śrīpati, asserts that the final goal of the soul is aikya or unity with Paraśiva. The soul in union with Śiva enjoys unexcelled bliss. The mukta increasingly participates in the functions and powers of Śiva until completely absorbed in Śiva and attaining the condition of Paramaśiva.
