    In Advaita Vedanta is Brahman personal or impersonal? :)

    Impersonal.

    ETA: Sorry...knee jerk response. An advaitin can also be a Bhakti, which means Brahman can be perceived in both its saguna and the nirguna aspects. So a Bhakti can answer that Brahman is both personal and impersonal. Those from the dvaita and vishishtadviata schools of philosophy will therefore answer "both."

    No 'advaitin' (follower of Advaita, non-duality) denies Ishwara, God, except that wretched Aupmanyav. He is mad. :D
