In Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana's commentary, we will find the influence of both Ramanujacarya in particular verses and Madhvacarya in the general philosophy. English translation by Bhanu Swami
The Brahma sūtras (Sanskrit: ब्रह्म सूत्र) is a Sanskrit text, attributed to Badarayana, estimated to have been completed in its surviving form some time between 450 BCE and 200 CE. The text systematizes and summarizes the philosophical and spiritual ideas in the Upanishads. It is one of the foundational texts of the Vedānta school of Hindu philosophy. The Brahma sutras consists of 555 aphoristic verses (sutras) in four chapters. These verses are primarily about the nature of human existence and universe, and ideas about the metaphysical concept of Ultimate Reality called Brahman. The first chapter discusses the metaphysics of Absolute Reality, the second chapter reviews and addresses the objections raised by the ideas of competing orthodox schools of Hindu philosophies as well as heterodox schools such as Buddhism and Jainism, the third chapter discusses epistemology and path to gaining spiritually liberating knowledge, and the last chapter states why such a knowledge is an important human need. The Brahmasutra is one of three most important texts in Vedanta along with the Principal Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.
Laghu-bhagavatamrta serves as a supplementary text to Brhad-bhagavatamrta, written by Rupa’s elder brother and guru Sanatana Gosvami as a summary of the essential conclusions of the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Gopiparanadhana Prabhu is noted for his rare combination of Sanskrit expertise and complete loyalty to Srila Prabhupada. In the preface to Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta,Gopiparanadhana comments, “Srila Sanatana takes it for granted that Krsna-Gopala is supreme, that Krsna is the creator and controller of everything, and leaves the task of proving it to his brother Rupa Gosvami, who later takes it up in his Laghu- (“smaller”) bhagavatamrta.” Laghu-bhagavatamrta, then, is the condensed essence of the essence of Srimad-Bhagavatam in the sense that it bolsters that conclusion of the Bhagavatam, that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Presented in two parts, the nectar of Krsna and the nectar of His devotees, Laghu-bhagavatamrta concisely expresses the fundamental points of Gaudiya philosophy, points that would be accepted and repeated by all successor acaryas in the line of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. 
Nine Philosphical truth that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, commentary and explanation by Baladeva Vidyabhusana
Vedanta (/vɪˈdɑːntə/; Sanskrit: वेदान्त, IAST, Vedānta) or Uttara Mīmāṃsā is one of the six orthodox (āstika) schools of Hindu philosophy. Vedanta literally means "end of the Vedas", reflecting ideas that emerged from the speculations and philosophies contained in the Upanishads. It does not stand for one comprehensive or unifying doctrine. Rather it is an umbrella term for many sub-traditions, ranging from dualism to non-dualism, all of which developed on the basis of a common textual connection called the Prasthanatrayi. The Prasthanatrayi is a collective term for the Principal Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita. In this book Baladeva VIdyabhusana explained greatly philosophy Vedanta in Vaisnava perspective that consider top most philospical views among all Vaisnavas.
