In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Ekībhūta (एकीभूत) refers to “that which has become one”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “Mantras are in three modalities (gati)—Āṇava, Śākta, and Śāmbhava. The Vidyā should be repeated by means of the empowered utterance. (Repeated in this way) this mantra is merged in the dynamism of Śiva (śivacāra). One should repeat the mantra, which is on the path to liberation, within Rudra. Śakti is the seed of mantras while the body (piṇḍa) (of the mantra) is the field. One should know that the part (pada) (of the mantra arises) if it is fixed (in the field which is its highest state). This is a mantra’s threefold modality (gati). The Self, mind (manas) and body (piṇḍa) is the triple energy and the ‘coming and going’ (which is the dynamism of the mantra’s recitation). One should think that (in this way) the utterance of that mantra has become one [i.e., ekībhūta]”.

Ekībhūta (एकीभूत) refers to “one (individual) soul”, according to the the Niśvāsatattvasaṃhitā’s Nayasūtra 4.53-55.—Accordingly, “Thus one should meditate upon Śiva and the [individual] soul as one (ekībhūta). Thus thinking of all things, and similarly [one’s own] self, as like Śiva, one becomes devoid of attachment and hatred. They [scil. those who think in this way] become spotless, pure, full of Śiva nature. He should understand [himself] as having one flavour [with Śiva], being [as he now is] joined with Śiva. The whole universe, moving and unmoving is thought of as being like Śiva”.

Ekībhūta (एकीभूत) refers to “being one”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “This self is, by nature, different from the body, etc., consisting of consciousness and bliss, pure and united with mundane bondage [com.—as one (ekavān), being one (ekībhūtaḥ)]. In reality, there is no unity of the forms of matter and consciousness with regard to mundane bondage and the connection of these two is without a beginning like gold and a flaw in gold”.
