Everywhere Vs. Nowhere

It is said that, when HiranyaKasipu asked his son Prahlada, "Where is Hari?" Prahlada saw Hari everywhere. At the same time, HiranyaKasipu saw Hari nowhere.

It is obvious that this can be interpreted in a theistic way.

In an Advaitic way, this can be thought of as a competetion between the Advaitists (who see Brahman everwhere) and the ShunyaVadis, who are incapable of the feeling of fullness/infinite-perfectness.
