A Sanskrit word, sometimes rendered as Ichcha, which means either desire or will. It is also the first or will aspect of the Trinity, as well as the will aspect of the Self. In Vedanta the “Iccha” (will) of Isvara not only brings about creation and dissolution, but also is the sustainer and giver of merit and demerit.
