Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Ekībhāva (एकीभाव) or Ekībhāvatva refers to a “state of oneness”, according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “[...] It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). [...] Linked to Moon, Sun and Fire, she generates the seeds of (her) energies. Her form is one and, transcendent (nirālokā), is the supreme abode. She assumes a state of oneness [i.e., ekībhāva-tva] in the middle of one who possesses (her) radiant energy. She shines, present in multiplicity (nānākhya) like the light of many suns. [...]”.

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions
Ekībhāva (एकीभाव) refers to “one” (i.e., ‘oneness of phenomena’), according to the 13th-century Matsyendrasaṃhitā: a Kubjikā-Tripurā oriented Tantric Yoga text of the Ṣaḍanvayaśāmbhava tradition from South India.—Accordingly, “[...] He should treat [all phenomena] as one (ekībhāva), not as separate. He should not drink [alcohol] or eat meat idly [with no ritual purpose]. He should not drink wine without first purifying it [with mantras], and he should consume meat after he has purified it with that [wine]. He should not answer the call of nature, should not sip water, etc., while reciting mantras or in an assembly. If he does so out of folly, the curse of the Yoginīs will fall on him. [...]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
