Tanya: And this is (p. 455) ...the sea." (p. 457).
Great elders of the Alter Rebbe's chassidim used to say that yechidus (private audience with the Rebbe) means: "clear," "designated," "united." The sources of these three interpretations are in Shekalim 6:2, Yevamot 62a, and Bereishit Raba 20.
This means that the idea of yechidus is:
To clarify one's own status;
To designate a mode of avoda for him in "turn(ing) away from evil" and in the acquisition of fine character traits;
And that he should bind himself1 in total oneness, and utterly dedicate himself1 with all his desires.
