Hinduism - What Or Who Is Considered Nirakara In Hindu Spirituality?

 ("devoid of shape") The highest feature of heavenly reality's epithet.

Many Hindu traditions hold that God is essentially formless, transcending all particularity and being superior to any particular depiction.

This view is originally expressed in the Upanishads, the speculative religious scriptures that represent the most recent portion of the Vedas, and is promoted by Upanishad-based intellectual systems like Advaita Vedanta.

Certain Hindu theistic traditions, such as the Gaudiya Vaishnava religious group, disagree with this idea, believing that a specific deity—in this instance, Krishna—is the Ultimate Reality.
