Philosophical (vedānta) view. This is identical with the ekajīvavāda According to this view, the consciousness when reflected in avidyā is jīva and since avidyā is one, the jīva also is one. And the other individual souls and the insentient universe are like objects in a dream state; they have only apparent reality. The one and the only individual soul attains liberation after getting the intuitive knowledge of Brahman from the preceptor who is also fancied by him as an omniscient being. This view is said to be the principal view of the Vedānta.
