  • He was called as Krishna Dwaipayana – When he was born, Vedavyasa’s complexion was dark and therefore he was referred as Krishna and the couple had the child on one of the islands (dweepa) of Yamuna River.   That is how he got the name Krishna Dwaipayan.

  • He is the Paramathma’s avataara with  vast literary and missionary accomplishments.
  • It was he who complied the Vedas into four – Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvanaveda and it is this astounding effort that gave him the title Veda Vyasa.

  2. Padma Purana
  3. Vishnu Purana
  4. Shaiva Purana
  5. Bhagwata Purana

18 Upa-Puranas (subsidiary epics) and is the author of the grandest and largest epic – the Mahabharat which contains the Bhagawad Geeta -one of the greatest scriptures of the world.   He is also the author of the “Bhagavata Purana” and the “Brahma Sutras”.  But for him,  we would not have had so vast a range of Hindu literature.

Some have called Sri Vedavyasaru as “kaschana Rishi” (ordinary rushi).  But Acharya Madhwa has termed him as the incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu only.  He did the avatara for asura jana mohanartha only.  He got a son called “Shukacharya” , for hom he taught the entire Bhagavatha, who in turn told it to Pareekshit Maharaja.
