I remember reading that somewhere and it makes sense since Bhagavatam has a distinct South Indian feel to it. This also has implications for its date.

    No, Bhagavatam doesn't use Alwar poetry. – user9969 Apr 24 '18 at 18:49

    All the puranas make mention of religious philosophies dated before 1 ad like shiva purana mentioning the pashuapata system, the devi purana mentioning Tantra, the vaishnava purana mentioning bhagvata and panchratra movements, the westerners give date around 1 ad but these philosophies were around from dwapara to 500bc-700ad until coming of shankara, the alwars are also dated to 1bc but that's not the date believed by traditionalists. – Anisha Apr 24 '18 at 18:53

    @SK but that's what the scriptures say the avatars of Lord shiva and Lord Vishnu, sage narayana and sage lakulisa were avatars in starting of dwapara yugas. – Anisha Apr 24 '18 at 19:02
  • Hinduism has no real notion of time. – S K Apr 24 '18 at 20:59
