Srila Rupa Goswami

Rupa Goswami developed his style in writing Ujjavla-nilamani after reading these verses (SB 10th Canto), or we can say that these verses of the Bhagavatam (especially those contained within the rasa chapters) were written in the style of Rupa Goswami's Ujjavla-nilamani. Srimad-Bhagavatam is mula-pramana, the original root of all Vedic evidence.

Therefore Rupa Goswami composed his poetry in pursuance of the Srimad-Bhagavatam's version. However, because Rupa Goswami is Rupa Manjari and is an eternal associate of Radha and Krsna, he is the root of all understanding. Thus, it is equally true to say that the Srimad-Bhagavatam follows the direction of Rupa Goswami.
