It’s so rare to find definitions of nonduality in regular dictionaries. To find a definition of advaita, which is Sanskrit for nonduality, in Webster’s dictionary seems even more uncommon. But here it is. There must be a lexicographer who is into nonduality. I’m glad we got people in the dictionary biz. And believe me, we do have people.
Main Entry: advai•ta

Etymology: Sanskrit, from a- + dvaita duality, from dvi two — more at TWO
