Dear Sada ji,

What you say above is true. Especially in the Uddhava Geeta we find verses
that resemble Gauda pada kaarikaas.

It is true that Shankaracharya, and even Ramanuja, have not referred to the
Bhagavatam in the Brahma sutra Bhashya. I am not sure about the actual
period when the Bhagavatam was composed. In the Hemadri's commentary that I
have referred to in this post, there is a reference to Shankaracharya's
commentary to the Vishnu Sahasra Nama and I verified it to be true.
