Hinduism - What Is Nirguna In Hindu Spirituality?


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

Many Hindu traditions hold that God is ultimately devoid of traits and attributes, transcending all particularity and being superior to any qualifying form.

The Upanishads, the theoretical religious scriptures that constitute the most recent component of the Vedas, and philosophical traditions founded on the Upanishads, such as Advaita Vedanta, are the first to express this notion.

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.
