The impersonalists say that Brahman is not the Supreme Person nor a Supreme Being, but rather is a thing that has no attributes and no form and no personality.
Question: What is the difference between this concept of Brahman and ATHEISM?

Shantanu Panigrahi
The difference between Atheism and Brahman as not being a Supreme Person nor a Supreme Being (impersonalists) is that Sri Krishna in unmanifest in Brahman, that is He lies dormant unless He decides to manifest Himself in Brahman. Brahman is more accurately described as Brahma-Nature, composed of sattvic, rajasic, and tamasic guna consciousness, that is nothing to do with theism. For a Vishista-advaitist. who believes in this conception, Sri Krishna exists beyond Brahman and it is momentarily and inadvertently still realised as the source of everything that exists and everything that happens to the universe through His Sudharshan Chakra.
