Brahman is beyond description. Should we not say Brahman is both with and without form as Brahman is everything?

I think the word -as- used by Swami Gambirananda has confused you.The meanings of both are the same.The Almighty is unmanifest /formless but ignorant think as if He is endowed with form.
Brahman is considered as formless by Advaitins that is devoid of all upadhies.R.Krishnamoorthy.
