Nirguṇabrahma (निर्गुणब्रह्म) refers to “an erroneous conception of brahma in which it is supposed that the Supreme Absolute Reality is devoid of all qualities. Nirguṇa-brahma actually refers to Śrī Kṛṣṇa, who is free from all material qualities and yet is the master of them”. (cf. Glossary page from Śrīmad-Bhagavad-Gītā).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
