Brahman represents the Supreme Reality for Hindus.  Hindus believe that the Brahman, described in the Upanishads can be viewed from two aspects transcendent (impersonal) and immanent (personal).  In its transcendent aspect the Supreme Reality is called Nirguna Brahman, or Brahman without attributes.

About Nirguna Brahman Taittiriya Upanishad states, “the Brahman is He whom speech cannot extress, and from whom the mind, unable to reach Him comes away baffled”.
