Nirguna Brahman, (Devanagari , nirgua brahman, the supreme reality without form, quality, attribute) signifies in Hindu philosophy the that pervades the Universe, considered without form (guna), as in the Advaita school or else as without material form, as in Advaita Vedanta, the nirguna brahman is non-different from the supreme personality, God, whatever qualities we attribute to the divine. Nirgun Brahman is same as Para Brahman, i.e. Neither Male nor female.

The Absolute without qualities, is impersonal, without guna or attributes, Nirakara (formless), Nirvisesha (without special characteristics), immutable, eternal and Akarta (non-agent). It is above all needs and desires. It is always the Witnessing Subject. It can never become an object as It is beyond the reach of the senses. Brahman is non-dual, one without a second. It has no other beside It. It is destitute of difference, either external or internal. Brahman cannot be described, because description implies distinction. Brahman cannot be distinguished from any other than It. In Brahman, there is not the distinction of substance and attribute. Sat-Chit-Ananda (Truth-Consciousness-Bliss) constitute the very essence or Svarupa of Brahman, and not just Its attributes.

Meditate w/o living world's all attractions with only one prayer continuously chanted inaudibly 'O GOD make me understand on it' ,irrespective of time spent (may be years )!
WHEN one's mind is REALLY ATTRACTION FREE he might get the answer within his mind but when asked HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAY ABOUT IT!

The impersonal aspect of the Ultimate Reality is called Nirguna Brahman in Hindu scriptures. Nirguna Brahman has no attributes and, as such, is not an object of prayer, but of meditation and knowledge. This aspect of the Ultimate Reality is beyond conception, beyond reasoning and beyond thought.
