Five Kinds of Knowledge

Pratyakṣa—this knowledge refers to what we realize by our five kinds of senses and by what we see. This is pratyakṣa. But pratyakṣa is not helpful. It is not real. It is only the shadow; it is the perverted reflection of that aprākṛta (transcendental) world. It changes every minute. So, pratyakṣa means direct knowledge. Direct knowledge is not good.

Impersonalism or voidism has no connection with Śrī Guru; he is eternally present in his spiritual form and he is worshipful and worshiped when manifest in this material world as well as when unmanifest.
