The key thing to note is Sri sureshvarAchArya and Sri padmapAdA are
direct disciples of Sri Sankara. Hence, their knowledge of what
Sankara thought on a particular point does not rely on  texts alone 
but more on  their direct personal interaction with him. I think any
difference expressed in their work must have had the sanction of
Sankara. And probably with a definite purpose.

Did Sankara write BSB after or before  writing bhAShya on
bR^ihadAraNyaka? In either case, does it not indicate a change in his
point of view.
