Shri Krishna Avatars

Vyasa Avatar

Vyasa (Devanagari: vyasa) is a central and revered figure in most Hindu traditions. He is also sometimes called Veda Vyasa (??? ?????, veda vyasa), (the one who classified the Vedas into four parts) or Krishna Dvaipayana (referring to his complexion and birthplace). He is the author of the Mahabharata, as well as a character in it. He is considered to be the scribe of both the Vedas and Puranas. Vyasa is a kala-Avatar or part-incarnation of the God Vishnu.[1][2] Vyasa was sometimes conflated by some Vaishnavas with Badarayana, the compiler of the Vedanta Sutras, but Badarayana is none other than Sri Krishna Dvaipayana also called as Sri Veda Vyasa, the incarnation of the Supreme Narayana. Vyasa is also considered to be one of the seven Chiranjivins (long lived, or immortals), who are still in existence according to general Hindu belief. He is also the fourth member of the Rishi Parampara of the Advaita Guru Parampara of which Adi Shankara is the chief proponent

The festival of Guru Purnima is dedicated to him. It is also known as Vyasa Purnima for it is the day believed to be both his birthday and the day he divided the Vedas
