If you are talking only about the word sAyujya, then it is fine.
The stages which you had mentioned in your mail is certainly not in advaitic tradition.
It is only in some vaishNava schools.

> Of the four muktis mentioned Saalokya , Saaroopya , Saamipya and
Saayujya , only the fourth indicates Nirguna mukti . The Puraanas
testify to this .
Is this advaita??
It certainly is Advaita . Saayujya indicates union . The assorted Vaishnava schools claim that it indicates union as in relationships . But , logically and taking the word literally does imply Absolute Non-difference .
Again if it did indicate dualism , what would be the need of the other forms of liberation ? Also , if liberation was to have the form of duality , why would Saayujya mukti come into the picture at all ?
