In the Sanat Sujatiya Bhashya Shankaracharya cites a few verses from the
Kurma Purana in the name of Parameshwara, in connection with Brahman
knowledge and the sadhna for it. In the verse Shiva says the aspirant will
attain him. Immediately after that he cites  from theBh.Gitar and mentions
Vasudeva in the context of the nature of the Jnani. It is well known in the
Gita that Krishna says that the aspirant attains him.

What is striking is that for Shankara the emphasis is on the doctrine of
Vedanta rather than the persons involved there.
